Abstract

PURPOSE:

We report here a patient with bilateral papillomacular retinoschisis with an enlarged glaucomatous optic nerve head cup and a focal lamina cribrosa defect, the findings of our clinical investigations of this case, and the chosen treatment and outcome.

DESIGN:

This is an observational case report.

METHODS:

Clinical examinations were performed using simultaneous confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and optical coherence tomography (OCT). The patient was treated by pars plana vitrectomy (PPV).

RESULTS:

The left eye had a macular detachment with a presumed acquired pit of the optic nerve, while the right eye did not have an obvious optic nerve pit. Enhanced depth imaging OCT showed focal lamina cribrosa defects in both eyes. PPV was performed on the left eye, which resulted in a re-attachment of the macula and improvement of the visual acuity.

CONCLUSIONS:

Our findings suggest that the pathological changes were most likely due to focal lamina cribrosa defects in both glaucomatous eyes. This type of maculopathy can be successfully treated with PPV.
