Case 3-10 continued
Examination of the patient's right eye (C) revealed a pseudo-operculum in front of the fovea- The visual acuity in this eye was 20/25,
An OCT image (D) confirmed the presence of a small piece of tissue situated approximately 720 jjm in front of a normal appearing fovea. The posterior hyaloid was barely visible nasally in the image as a thin, minimally reflective band contiguous with the pseudo-operculum and separated from the retina. The finding of a pseudo-operculum suggested an arrested stage of hole development in this fellow eve due to spontaneous vitreofoveal separation, and a minimal associated risk of a full-thickness hole developing in this eye.
