Abstract

Abstract Six eyes with optic nerve pit and associated sensory retinal detachment of the macula were treated using a management plan that utilized a combination of techniques including laser photocoagulation, pars plana vitrectomy, and intraocular air/fluid exchange. In each treated eye the retina was eventually flattened. This paper discusses this plan of management and series of treatment modalities.
