    En Face Optical Coherence Tomography of Stellate Nonhereditary Idiopathic Foveomacular Retinoschisis

    A woman in her 60s presented with 2 months of blurred vision in the left eye, with visual acuity of 20/40. Examination of the left ocular fundus revealed spokelike foveal cysts. Fluorescein angiography showed no foveal leakage. En face optical coherence tomography (Optovue Inc) in the left eye revealed stellate hyporeflectivity ( Figure , A). A retinal cross-section scan revealed foveomacular retinoschisis involving the outer plexiform layer ( Figure , B). The fellow eye was normal. Without evidence of X-linked retinoschisis, niacin or taxane use, enhanced S-cone syndrome, glaucoma, traction, optic pit, or pathologic myopia, the patient was diagnosed as having stellate nonhereditary ...
