Congenital optic disc pit is a rare finding that develops from incomplete closure of the embryonic choroid fissure. Maculopathy is a major cause of visual deterioration. The treatment of the macular detachments associated with congenital optic disc pits remains controversial however it is emphasised that rerouting fluid from subretinal space may be an efficient method. The main drawback of commonly use surgical methods is slow reabsorption of fluid taking weeks or even months. We report a different surgical approach in 2 patients consisting of vitrectomy, subretinal tissue glue injection followed by gas tamponade that allowed achieving very fast functional and anatomic recovery within 1 month.
