This report deals with our observations on tractional degenerations of peripheral retina in general hospital attending population.


  MATERIALS & METHODS Top


The present investigation was undertaken in 800 eyes of 400 normol individuals who were picked up randomly from those attending the general and refraction clinics.

The examination of peripheral retina was undertaken after a maximal pupillary dilata­tion with the help of indirect ophthalmoscope with the use of scleral depression. In certain relevant cases, this was supplemented by poste­rior segment biomicroscopy with the help of a Goldmann's 3-Mirror contact lens. The find­ings were recorded on a conventional fundus charts.


  OBSERVATIONS & DISCUSSION Top


Different types of tractional degenerations observed either as isolated findings or in com­bination with other forms have been summari­sed in [Table - 1]. [Figure - 1]. and [Table - 2].

The types of retinal breaks (28 eyes) were round holes : 91%; Flap tears; 7.5 1sub,0 and Linear tears: 1.5%. Flap tears in normal asymptomatic eyes are dangerous lesions and should be prophylactically treated. Followup examination of eyes having tractional degene­rative lesions is important from the point of view of prophylactic treatment.
