Abstract

The objective of this report is to demonstrate that individuals with dome-shaped macula can develop persistent subretinal fluid due to abrupt changes in the thickness of the choroid, making it unlikely to be reported. Additionally, these patients often have pigment epithelial detachments, suggestive of possible choroidal neovascularization. These two qualities can often lead to persistent subretinal fluid that is refractory to treatment.
