  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 17-year-old female was referred to us for retinal detachment in her left eye. The corrected visual acuity was 0.1 right and 0.06 left. Myopia of -6D and -8D was present. The left eye showed extensive flat retinal detachment except the nasal hemisphere. Epiretinal membrane, tracted optic disc and abnormalities in retinal vascular structure were present in the posterior pole. Wide avascular zone and neovascularizations were present in the periphery. Fluorescein angiography showed linear course of retinal vessels and supernumerous bifurcations. Dye leakage was prominent from newly formed vessels in the equator except the nasal hemisphere. Vitreous surgery induced reattachment of the retina. The corrected visual acuity recovered to 1.0 with improved visual field.
