The Best Corrected Visual Acuity in his left eye was 6/60 with Snellen Visual Acuity Chart. Fundoscopic examination demonstrated a preretinal haemorrhage in the left eye over the macula. Optical Coherance Tomography demonstrated subhyaloid and Sub Internal Limiting Membrane localization of the haemorrhage. Patient was unwilling for the surgical intervention advised. With conservative management, the patient’s vision improved to 6/18 in the same eye with resolution of haemorrhage and Retinal Pigment epithelial atrophy at the macula.
