Presentation will be made of the progressive alterations observed at the level of the photoreceptor and external limiting membrane that appear to be related to the retinal detachment age. These data appear to reinforce observations made on OCT imaging. Immuno-histo chemistry highlights the level of the retinal damage. Examples of persisting alterations after re-attachment by silicone oil will be shown.
