Posterior vitreous separation in High Myopia

DOI: 10.3207/1519382546

Vitreo-retinal adhesion is typically extremely tight in high myopia at the posterior pole. Remnants or plaques of hyaloid are often associated with retinal tears, then in conjunction with posterior pole rhegmatogenous retinal  detachments. To ignore residual hyaloid would mean to accept a risk of PVR retinal re-detachment. The hyaloid is virtually impossible to discern without the help of triamcinolone. Then it is so adherent that suction is insufficient force to detach it. It requires a forceps maneuver to lift the hyaloid of the retina.
