Posterior Staphyloma

Posterior Staphyloma

A staphyloma is a circumscribed outpouching of the wall of the globe. Posterior staphyloma is considered a hallmark of pathologic myopia and are among one of the major causes of developing maculopathy. However, it can be present in non-myopic eyes, often acquired secondarily due to infection or trauma.
