A Posterior Staphyloma

A posterior staphyloma is an area of disturbance or atrophy in the retina.   Posterior staphylomas are usually congenital or occur with high myopia (nearsightedness).   They can affect visual function, sometimes causing distortion.   There is no specific treatment for this condition.   This is carefully monitored for rare complications, such as neovascularization (bleeding).
