Posterior Vitreous Detachment with Retinal Tear

AG is a 32-year-old man who was very sensitive to anything around his eyes. He had once tried to wear contact lenses, but gave up when he took over an hour to insert them. He never had successfully completed a glaucoma test because he would not keep his eyes open for tonometry or air-puff testing. He noted the onset of light flashes and floaters in his right eye for several days and presented at the ophthalmologist’s office at his wife’s insistence. His visual acuity was 20/30-2 OD and 20/20 OS with a myopic correction of −6.00 in each eye. His intraocular pressure could not be measured and the peripheral fundi could not be examined with scierai depression or three-mirror contact lens examination because of the blepharospasm that these procedures precipitated.
