A 65-year-old female patient was referred with incidental bleeding in her right eye.

Case history

A 65-year-old Caucasian female patient was referred by her optometrist with incidental bleeding in her right eye. The patient did not report any visual concerns. She was a non-smoker and had no significant past ocular or medical history.

On examination her best corrected visual acuities measured 6/7.5 right eye (OD) and 6/6 left eye (OS). Intraocular pressures were normal and anterior segment examination was unremarkable. Posterior segment examination demonstrated subretinal haemorrhage and exudate at the inferotemporal aspect of the right optic disc (Figure 1). No significant pathology was evident at the central macula of either eye or left optic nerve.
