Abstract Details


We report a case of a patient who developed symptomatic progressive optic neuropathy in association with vitreo-papillary traction (VPT).


Wills Eye Hospital, Philadelphia, USA


Single centre retrospective case report of a patient with progressive optic neuropathy and VPT. Magnetic resonance imaging documented an absence of central nervous system abnormalities. The patient underwent intravitreal ocriplasmin injection with successful relief of traction and stabilization in vision.


VPT may be associated with a chronic, progressive optic neuropathy. Ocriplasmin injection successfully relieved traction and produced stabilization of vision in this patient.


VPT with chronic progressive optic neuropathy is a distinct clinical entity that may be diagnosed more frequently because of the increased resolution of SD-OCT.
