    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. - A scleral indentation technique allows for safe and comfortable internal limiting membrane, or ILM, peeling in highly myopic eyes using regular forceps.
    “ILM peeling in high myopic eyes is technically challenging. Staining is poor, visibility is limited, and the ILM is friable in some cases. Standard forceps are often difficult to use if the axial length is longer than 27 mm and impossible if it is longer than 28 mm. Iatrogenic damage to the retina may occur during grasping and regrasping of the membrane,” Khalid Sabti, MD, FRCS, said at the Retina
