RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN RETINOSHISIS AND MACULAR HOLE IN HIGHLY NEAR-SIGHTED EYES

Access : Natural evolution from macular retinoschisis to full-thickness macular hole in highly myopic eyes : Eye

Retinoschisis is a partial detachment of the retina from itself, occurring in the peripheral retina. The attached layers of the retina prevent a full retina detachment. Retinoschisis is usu
ally non-threatening and not treated. It is merely observed from year to year.

A macular hole is a complete retinal hole that occurs in the macula, that area that affects the center of vision. It occurs suddenly and usually requires treatment with a decent prognosis.

This article describes the relationship of retinoschisis to macular hole formation.
