Question:
I read that posterior staphylomas usually progress with age. Is that always true? Is it possible they could stay the same size?

Answer:
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.
