    End-stage chorioretinal atrophy in pathologic myopia. Note the patches of full-thickness tissue loss; these appear white be-cause of the direct visualization of the sclera. The emissary openings in the sclera become enlarged. Inset, an OCT image taken at the origin of the arrow, demonstrates remarkable thinning of the sclera and a near absence of scleral tissue in the emissary opening itself
