A 13-year-old male presented with decreased vision and squint from childhood. He had bilateral large colobomata at the macula in each eye, the one on the right being larger than the left. The disc was dragged temporally with straightening of the temporal retinal vessels. This is a case report of bilateral large macular coloboma and serves to report its association with a temporally dragged disc and straightened temporal retinal vessels. A dragged disc if present with a colobomatous defect at the macula may strengthen the case for diagnosis of macular coloboma and help exclude other differentials. Source

This report describes the case of a 27-year-old lady who presented with sudden decrease in vision in the right eye for one week. She was suffering from constipation and had a history of straining while passing stools. She was found to have two large sub-internal limiting membrane haemorrhages with the classical double ring sign, which were drained using laser membranotomy, following which her vision rapidly improved. This case of two sub-internal limiting membrane haemorrhages is reported for its rarity and also highlights the usefulness of laser hyaloidotomy or membranotomy in large haemorrhages of recent onset. The literature was also reviewed to discuss the other treatment options in brief. © 2015 The Authors. Source

Lattice degeneration of the retina is not infrequently encountered on a dilated retinal examination and many of them do not need any intervention. We report a case of atypical lattice degeneration variant with peripheral retinal detachment. An asymptomatic 35-year-old lady with minimal refractive error was found to have extensive lattice degeneration, peripheral retinal detachment and fibrotic changes peripherally with elevation of retinal vessels on dilated retinal examination. There were also areas of white without pressure, chorioretinal scarring and retinal breaks. All the changes were limited to beyond the equator but were found to span 360 degrees. She was treated with barrage laser all around to prevent extension of the retinal detachment posteriorly. She remained stable till her latest follow-up two years after the barrage laser. This case is reported for its rarity with a discussion of the probable differential diagnoses. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of such findings in lattice degeneration. © 2016, Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research. All rights reserved. Source
