1. Three-dimensional Visualization of Vitreoretinal Abnormalities in High Myopia

    The authors have evaluated with three-dimensional (3D) spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) four highly myopic eyes (2 patients) presenting with peripapillary detachment of the pigment epithelium (PDPM), vitreoretinal tractions, and myopic retinoschisis. Three-dimensional SD-OCT analysis of PDPM revealed an optically empty space localized beneath the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE). A peripapillary separation of the retina-RPE complex from the choroid could explain the presence of this space. The 3D imaging of vitreomacular tractions could help physicians plan the appropriate surgical approach in patients with myopic posterior detachment due to macular hole.
