Case 7-1 continued
The patient returned for a follow-up visit six weeks later with no improvement in visual acuity. Slit-lamp examination revealed that the serous elevation had decreased since the previous visit. A repeat OCT tomogram (D) taken at this time confirmed the decrease in subretinal fluid accumulation. The height of the detachment was measured to be 120 ¡urn directly beneath the fovea. On follow-up examination another two months later, the patient noted a decrease in the size of the scotoma in his left eye, and his visual acuity had returned to 20/20, No remaining sub-retinal fluid was observed on indirect ophthalmoscopy. A third horizontal OCT image (E) taken through the fovea showed that the detachment had completely resolved directly beneath the fovea. However, a residual region of fluid accumulation remained temporal to the fovea.
