A white woman in her 60s with a history of multiple surgeries for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment presented with a chronic tractional macular-off retinal detachment related to proliferative vitreoretinopathy grade C in the right eye. Her best-corrected visual acuity was 20/80. Optical coherence tomography demonstrated an epiretinal membrane, subretinal fluid, and a subretinal proliferative vitreoretinopathy band with an apparent splitting of the photoreceptors at the inner and outer segment junction that was partially attached to the retinal pigment epithelium and to the neurosensory retina (Figure).
