Optic pit-like maculopathy in a patient without any detectable disc anomalies.

Saudi J Ophthalmol 2021 Apr-Jun;35(2):149-151. Epub 2022 Feb 18.

Eye Research Center, The Five Senses Institute, Rassoul Akram Hospital, Iran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Macular schisis is the splitting of the inner retinal layers at macula, with or without associated detachment. The acquired form of macular schisis is frequently associated with optic disc pit maculopathy, although it could be accompanied by several conditions such as tractional maculopathies, cystoid macular edema, veno-occlusive disease, and shaken baby syndrome. However, a small number of cases of retinoschisis without optic disc pit have been reported elsewhere. Read More

Harkness Eye Institute, Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York City, NY, USA. Electronic address:

Myopic traction maculopathy (MTM), one of the complications of pathologic myopia, is a spectrum of pathological conditions that are attributed to tractional changes in the eye characterized by retinoschisis, lamellar or full thickness macular hole, and foveal retinal detachment. Considering the global public health burden of MTM and pathologic myopia, it is important to understand these sight-threatening complications and their associations. We conducted an evidence-based review of the prevalence and natural history of MTM and associated risk factors. Read More

Indian J Ophthalmol 2022 Feb;70(2):465-470

Vitreoretina Services, Narayana Nethralaya, Bangalore, Karnataka, India.

Purpose: To compare multicolor imaging (MCI) with Optos color fundus photography (OCFP) for the evaluation of morphology and extent of preretinal membranes in diabetic tractional retinal detachments (TRD).

Comparison of before versus after intravitreal bevacizumab injection, growth factor levels and fibrotic markers in vitreous samples from patients with proliferative diabetic retinopathy.

Graefes Arch Clin Exp Ophthalmol 2022 Jun 14;260(6):1899-1906. Epub 2022 Jan 14.

Department of Ophthalmology, Kocaeli University Medical School, 41001, İzmit, Kocaeli, Turkey.
