Abstract Purpose:To report the outcome of myopic retinoschisis following vitreous surgery.

Cases and Method:This study was made on 11 eyes of 11 cases who received vitreous surgery for myopic retinoschisis in the past 2 years. The series comprised 3 males and 8 females. The age ranged from 55 to 74 years, average 62 years. The length of ocular axis ranged from 26.08 to 30.59 mm, average 29.14 mm. The posterior vitreous cortex was removed extensively in all the eyes. Vitrectomy with peeling of internal limiting membrane(ILM)was performed in 7 eyes.

Results:Retinoschisis improved morphologically in all the eyes. Corrected visual acuity improved in 9 eyes and remained unchanged in one eye. One eye, that did not receive ILM peeling, showed recurrence of retinoshisis 2 months after surgery. Retinoschisis resolved after additional ILM peeling.

Conclusion:The present cases illustrate that vitrectomy is effective for myopic retinoschisis. Simutaneous ILM peeling seems to contribute to better outcome.
