Figure 2: The hypothetical mechanism of myopic retinoschisis is that the rigid layers namely the partially adherent posterior hyaloid, epiretinal membranes, internal limiting membrane and the inner retinal layers containing the rigid retinal vessels split from the more flexible outer retina, choroid and retinal pigment epithelium, under the inward traction force of the partially detached posterior hyaloid and the outward force exerted by the backward elongation of the sclera at the posterior staphyloma
