    re-attached retinal detachment (RRD), intraretinal cyst
    Description
    This is the same lesion as in the previous photograph shown 13 days after surgery. Not only is the retina reattached, but the cyst has now completely disappeared even though no treatment of any kind was applied in the vicinity of the cyst. Long detached retinas tend to develop intraretinal cysts, and these tend to disappear following reattachment of the retina even without direct treatment to the cysts.
