Axial
Figure A and B is an example of retinal detachment with bilateral V- shaped intraorbital leaflets converging towards the optic disc. Importantly the anterior margin of the leaflets does not extend beyond the ora serrata reference point at the 2 and 10 o'clock position. Conversely, Figure C and D shows bilateral choroidal detachment with convex intraorbital leaflets anteriorly extending beyond the ora serrata reference point.
