I read that posterior staphylomas usually progress with age. Is that always true? Is it possible they could stay the same size?
Posterior staphylomas can be variable in size, progression, and how they affect vision. It is not a given that they will progress. Your past history of whether your staphyloma has progressed can be helpful in predicting its future. I urge you to speak with your ophthalmologist (Eye M.D.) for more details on your specific situation.
