Brief Summary:
Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is a relatively new imaging technique in ophthalmology. This clear and documented imaging identified new diseases/ observations that were not previously known.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Tomography, Optical Coherence Other: Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT)

Detailed Description:
In ophthalmology vitreo-macular adhesion, vitreo-macular traction and posterior vitreous detachment were recognized entities for a long time. On the other hand vitreo-papillary adhesion/ traction is a fairly new concept in ophthalmology that became known after the use of OCT in ophthalmology imaging. Reasons, effects and ways of treatment of vitreo-papillary traction will take some time to evolve. The case study in which this traction was documented was initiated by an observation of a persistent, tiny single retinal hemorrhage above the optic disc of an eye. The patient was completely asymptomatic because of the vitreo-papillary traction but the OCT documentation of the case was so clear and striking.
