    Comment on Real-Time In Vivo Assessment of Retinal Reattachment in Humans Using Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography

    We read with interest the manuscript by Bansal and associates 1 regarding optical coherence tomography (OCT) to assess retinal reattachment following successful pneumatic retinopexy (PnR). The authors propose that retinal reattachment occurs through 5 specific stages: approach of the neurosensory retina towards the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE, stage 1), improvement of outer retinal corrugations (stage 2), contact of the neurosensory retina to the RPE (stage 3), deturgescence of the photoreceptors (stage 4) and recovery of photoreceptor integrity (stage 5). An incomplete resolution of outer retinal corrugations before retinal reattachment may lead, according to the authors, to the formation of outer ...
