Abstract

In chorioretinal colobomas, the sclera is staphylomatous, the overlying retina is atrophic, and the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), Bruch membrane, choriocapillaries, and choroid can be absent and replaced by glial tissue. In this chapter, we discuss the clinical features, OCT features, ancillary testing, and treatment of children with chorioretinal coloboma.
