Case history

A 59-year-old Asian female presented to her optometrist 5 days after noting sudden loss of central vision in her left eye. She had no significant past ocular or medical history. The optometrist noted a large left submacular haemorrhage and referred her urgently for a further opinion and management.

On examination her right (OD) visual acuity was 6/5 and left (OS) visual acuity count fingers. Intraocular pressures were 21mmHg (OD) and 19mmHg (OS). Anterior segment examination was unremarkable. Posterior segment examination demonstrated a large left submacular haemorrhage. Within the haemorrhage and in the adjacent macula were reddish-orange polypoidal lesions (Figure 1). The contralateral fundus examination was normal.
