- Appears in
- scleral indentation, preretinal hemorrhage, subretinal fluid, posterior vitreous detachment, vitreous traction
- This is the same lesion with scleral indentation. You can see the small discrete preretinal hemorrhage and the sharply circumscribed area of elevated retina with subretinal fluid beneath it. No retinal break is visible, but the posterior vitreous is detached and exerting traction at this site. The area was surrounded with argon laser treatment the same day as the initial examination.
