Abstract

CASE REPORT:

We report a case that illustrates the effectiveness of optical coherence tomography (OCT) in identifying visually significant vitreoretinal interface opacities in the absence of a macular hole. A patient presented with a scotoma in the right eye. Fundoscopic examination revealed a small lesion in close proximity to the foveal avascular zone. OCT of the right eye revealed a small operculum in the vitreous anterior to the fovea without evidence of a macular hole.

COMMENTS:

To our knowledge, ours is the first reported case of the use of OCT to identify the presence of a visually significant operculum without an associated macular hole.
