|History: A 35 year-old man was referred to the
eye casualty because of a sudden right superior visual field loss. His
visual acuity was 6/9 and the fundoscopy revealed a bullous inferior retinal
detachment with retinal tears (not seen in the pictures). He underwent
a successful retinal repair operation. The eventual vision was 6/9.
The prognosis of retinal detachment is related to the initial visual acuity
at presentation which in turn is dependent on macular involvement. If the
macula is spared at initial presentation, surgery should be carried out
earlier for a better visual outcome.
