- The most commonly seen retinal detachment.
- Usually there is/are retinal break(s) induced by posterior vitreous detachment.
- Fluid from liquefied vitreous can pass through the break(s), enter the potential subretinal space and undermine the retina from the RPE.
- Retinal break(s)
- Undulating bulla, retinal tear flap, or corrugated folds
- Pigment in vitreous (tobacco dusts)
- Syneretic vitreous (liquefaction changes within the corpus vitreous)
- Low intraocular pressure
Identify and treat the breaks by a number of methods such as:
- Scleral buckling, cryotherapy or laser to promote firm chorioretinal adhesion.
- Pneumatic retinopexy for selected superior detachment.
- Temporary balloon device as a temporary buckling.
