Purpose: To report the role of Ultrasound Biomicroscopy (UBM) as a tool in the diagnosis and management of cyclodialysis clefts. Methods: Six eyes of 6 patients with hypotony and suspected or diagnosed cyclodialysis clefts underwent UBM evaluation. Post-treatment UBM was performed in four eyes to assess the effect of the treatment. Results: Cyclodialysis clefts were accurately diagnosed and delineated in 6 eyes by UBM. Complete closure was documented after treatment in 3 eyes, and a residual cleft in one eye. These findings were compared to gonioscopic findings. Conclusions: UBM is a safe, accurate and noninvasive diagnostic tool in the diagnosis of cyclodialysis clefts and is of particular use when other conventional methods of diagnosis are inconclusive.
