After a retinal fissure occurs in one eye, can a retinal fissure also occur in the other eye?

There is no direct causal relationship between the occurrence of retinal fissures in the two eyes. However, often the underlying retinal and vitreous conditions are more consistent in both eyes, such as high myopia, or other retinal pathology in both eyes. Therefore, when a retinal fissure is present in one eye, the other eye should be routinely examined.
