choroidal detachment

choroidal detachment 

A separation of the choroid from the sclera, usually resulting from intraocular surgery, a severe contusion, hypotony, or from a vascular disease. Fluid accumulates in the suprachoroidal space. The ciliary body may be involved. Ophthalmoscopic examination reveals dark, convex, smoothly rounded elevations of both the retina and the choroid. Intraocular pressure may be very low and some visual field defects may be present. Syn. choroidal effusion. See ocular hypotony; uveal effusion syndrome.
