  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

A 21-year-old female presented with metamorphopsia in her left eye of 2 weeks' duration. Her corrected visual acuity was 1.2 right and 1.0 left. A pit was present in the inferotemporal sector of her left optic disc. Retinal de-tachment extended from the pit to the macula. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) showed retinoschisis with edema in the outer retinal layer. There was no communication between the vitreous cavity and the subretinal space. The reti-noschisis further extended and the visual acuity decreased to 0.2 after two sessions of photocoagulation and another session of vitrectomy and gas tamponade. Macular detachment remarkably decreased after drainage of subretinal fluid through artificial retinal tear, endophotocoagulation and gas tamponade. Retinoschisis and macular detachment still per-sisted when seen by OCT 2 months later.
