Background: The development of tears of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) has classically been described with or without choroidal neovascularization (CNV) or after laser treatment. Tangential shear forces within the RPE or CNV are usually considered to cause the dehiscence. Methods: Three patients with CNV and spontaneous RPE tear and additional vitreomacular traction were examined by fluorescein angiography (FA), optical coherence tomography (OCT) and kinetic ultrasound. Results: From the… CONTINUE READING
