Sažetak
There is not even a single report in the literature of a case that can connect retinal detachment and childbirth in myopic women. However, myopia is considered as an indication for cesarean section in some European countries. Our retrospective study comprised all women diagnosed with myopia during or before pregnancy, who delivered during period 1993– 2002 in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, University Clinical Hospital Rijeka. Our study confirms the practice of myopia as indication for cesarean section in Croatia, although strong recommendations to allow high myopic patients deliver spontaneously arose as far back as 1985. It is essential to recognize scientific or non-scientific criteria for operative delivery in order to avoid the surgical overtreatment.
