- Progresses in vitreoretinal surgery have been beneficial to retinal disorders complicating high myopia. This session will review the recent trends in the preoperative evaluation of the myopic eye and in surgical techniques. High resolution MRI provides information on the various shapes of high myopic eyes, which may influence surgical procedures. New swept source OCT and autofluorescence imaging may also help decision making for surgery. Transconjunctival sutureless vitrectomy, vital dyes and vitreous markers improve the outcome of giant retinal tears, retinal detachment by macular hole or myopic foveoschisis. Advantages and drawbacks of posterior scleral buckling will be discussed. Indications for surgery in myopic macular hole, epiretinal membranes and myopic foveoschisis will be presented as well as the results expected. Retinal problems often interfere with refractive surgery or refractive problems occur when combined lens and retinal surgery is performed and this will be analyzed.
