Fundoscopic examination indicated exudative maculopathy and small hemorrhages located in the nerve tiber layer.
THE NETHERLANDS--Dutch Researchers found that age and early age-related maculopathy (ARM) are both prominent independent risk factors for the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD).
Being able to reduce the risk of myopic pathology such as glaucoma, retinal detachment and myopic maculopathy is also extremely appealing to parents.
Because idiopathic primary ERM is often a thin and transparent membrane resembling cellophane, it is also referred to as cellophane maculopathy. Cellophane maculopathy causes no traction and therefore no distortion in the neurosensorial retina or vascular structures, and is generally asymptomatic.
In patients with ODP maculopathy without preoperative posterior vitreous detachment (PVD), indeed, retinal schisis is resolved in most cases after pars plana vitrectomy (PPV) with the generation of PVD, but without any internal limiting membrane peeling, retinal photocoagulation at the disc edge, or gas tamponade [9, 10].
It may also be associated with papilloedema, vascular tor tuosity, chorioretinal folds and maculopathy.2 One advantage of 23-gauge transconjunctival vitrectomy is a shorter period of operation time.
Evidence-supported studies state that as soon as a child below 9 years old acquires myopia, the most likelihood that it will go up to a level of becoming a disease-i.e., higher than 6 diopters-the child has a high risk of developing-cataract, glaucoma, retinal detachment and maculopathy. High degrees of myopia may lead to visual impairment.
High myopes have an elevated risk of developing cataracts, glaucoma, retinal detachments and myopic maculopathy, Dr Bullimore said.
Twenty-one years later, a German ophthalmologist "determined that macular degeneration was as rare as maculopathy and traumatic maculopathy" in his review of 50,000 patient medical records.
In this study, 5 cases (25%) cases were proliferative, 12 cases (60%) were non-proliferative and 3 cases (50%) were found to have maculopathy. Some cases had clinical features of more than one sub-type and were analysed in both groups.
