Fig. 2

Pre- and postoperative images of Case 2, who had undergone prior scleral buckle surgery. a Preoperative wide-angle fundus photograph showing recurrent retinal detachment despite previous segmental scleral buckling surgery. b Fundus at 2 weeks post-surgery showing an attached retina and a dexamethasone implant in silicone oil. The photo is blurry because of a corneal epithelial defect. c Preoperative optical coherence tomography image showing retinal detachment involving the fovea. d Optical coherence tomography image obtained at 2 weeks post-surgery. e Wide-angle fundus photograph obtained at 1 year post-surgery. The image is hazy because of herpetic keratitis. f Slit-lamp photograph showing central corneal opacity. g Optical coherence tomography image obtained at 1 year post-surgery. Although the retina was successfully attached, visual acuity failed to improve because of corneal opacity
