Typical and Reticular Degenerative Retinoschisis
Retinoschisis is the term used to describe a complex and heterogeneous group of disorders characterized by splitting of the sensory retina. This concept of splitting or cleavage within the sensory retina was introduced by Bartels  in 1933, and the term retinoschisis was first applied to this process by Wilczek  in 1935. Samuels and Fuchs  used this concise term in their English-language textbook in 1952 and the word retinoschisis has been widely employed since then.
