    This is a color photograph of a right eye with a superior, bullous, macula-splitting retinal detachment. These features place the patient at a higher risk for macular fold formation postoperatively. To prevent fold formation, a surgeon should attempt for more complete subretinal fluid drainage during repair. This can be done with the use of perfluorocarbon liquid or by making a drainage retinotomy.
