Retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) tear is a potentially vision-threatening complication of retinal pigment epithelial detachment associated with neovascular age-related macular degeneration. RPE tear has been reported to occur spontaneously and after treatment with anti-vascular endothelial growth factor agents. The current study summarizes the presentation, diagnosis, management, and outcomes of RPE tears.
