Retinal Vascular Diseases
Neovascularization of the disc (NVD) associated with extensive fibrovascular proliferation.

  • Opaque fibrovascular proliferation tissue often appears on the internal limiting membrane (adjacent to the new vessels) and becomes adherent to the posterior vitreous.
  • Contraction of this fibrovascular tissue may lead to:
    • Distortion or dragging of the macula
    • Mild to extensive tractional retinal detachment
    • Avulsion of retinal vessels
    • Preretinal and/or vitreous hemorrhages
