Spontaneous improvement of macular traction retinal detachment associated with myopic macular schisis.


High myopia can be associated with a range of pathologic changes within the macula that are now easily appreciated with optical coherence tomography. In the setting of high myopia and a macular traction retinal detachment, the expectation is for progressive worsening over time, and surgical intervention is often undertaken early. The authors present a case of spontaneous improvement of myopic macular detachment, which illustrates the potential value of an initial period of observation in this clinical setting.
