The authors report the results of partial-thickness sclerectomy combined with mitomycin C in a nanophthalmic eye with serous retinal detachment. Partial sclerectomy in two quadrants with adjuvant use of mitomycin C without drainage of subretinal fluid was performed. The patient was monitored with serial fundus photographs and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) for up to 16 weeks postoperatively. Best corrected visual acuity improved from counting fingers at 1 meter preoperatively to 6/60 at final follow-up. There was gradual but complete resolution of serous retinal detachment both clinically and on SD-OCT. Partial-thickness sclerectomy with mitomycin C is an effective and safe procedure in the management of nanophthalmic eyes with uveal effusion.
