Draining fluid can counter large choroidal detachments

BOSTON — When dealing with large choroidal detachments, draining the choroidal fluid is a simple, low-risk way to stabilize the eye, a speaker here said. “Drainage of choroidal fluid will definitely re-establish the anatomy of the eye,” Marlene R. Moster, MD, told attendees at Glaucoma Day preceding the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery annual meeting. “It will preserve the bleb as aqueous formation will resume almost immediately to restore good vision, all with the minimal trauma of a 3-mm incision.”
