(a) Six weeks after surgery. The 20% remaining perfluoropropane (C3F8) bubble with a posterior temporal retinal tear treated with laser. (b) The 6-week spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) corresponding to the submacular hemorrhage is almost completely reabsorbed. The IS/OS and external limiting membrane (ELM) lines show irregularity and are compacted against the protruded hyperreflective retinal pigment epithelium (arrowhead). The retinal pigment epithelium shows bulging without rupture but only mild disruption and fused IS/OS with the ELM (c, d). The 6-month postoperative cross-sectional horizontal and (e, f) vertical planes through the foveal center on SD-OCT.
