Case Study
The article focuses on the case of a 26-year-old man with hypotony maculopathy and a cyclodialysis cleft. The patient experienced abrupt visual loss in the left eye after trauma, for which he had been taking atropine and prednisolone. The cyclodialysis cleft was revealed through a gonioscopic procedure. Argon laser photocoagulation was applied to the cyclodialysis cleft.

    Cyclodialysis clefts occur when the attachment of the ciliary body to the scleral spur is disrupted. The mechanism is usually traumatic or iatrogenic after phacoemulsification or other intraocular manipulation. Treatment becomes necessary when hypotony occurs, with maculopathy being the most...
