Customized Approach in RD in High Myopia

Retinal detachment in high myopia is due to a combination of anteroposterior traction (due to the elongation of the sclera unmatched to the elongation of the retina) and of tangential tractions (due to the formation of epiretinal contraction. I will discuss why it is not possible to propose vitrectomy as the only choice, since vitrectomy is related to a high rate of retinal detachment relapse and since, in case of an associated macular...

Course 2014: Pathologic Myopia

Definition of pathologic myopia (syn. degenerative myopia) is not uniform. From the view­point of the clinician, axial myopia associated with structural changes of the posterior globe describes the condition most properly, as these alterations may threaten visual acuity. Refraction errors greater than 8 diopters are frequently associated with visual dysfunction. The prevalence of high myopia is apparently increasing, particularly in some...
