    Occult Hypotony Maculopathy Diagnosed With Optical Coherence Tomography
    Three patients with hypotony had decreased vision and normal ocular examination results. Evaluation of the macula by optical coherence tomography (OCT) demonstrated hypotony maculopathy, which resolved after increasing the intraocular pressure (IOP). Several weeks after normalization of intraocular pressure, OCT showed resolution of folds in the neurosensory retina and choroid. The anatomic resolution corresponded well with the clinical findings of an increase in IOP and improved visual acuity. Optical coherence tomography is a valuable tool for diagnosing hypotony maculopathy and assessing restoration of normal anatomy following appropriate treatment to raise the IOP. Optical coherence tomography (Zeiss Meditec, Dublin, Calif) has ...
