A 44 year old woman presented with decreased vision and floaters, started since 4 days before, in her right eye referred to our ophthalmology clinic. On examination, it was found that the best corrected visual acuity was limited to R-E: 20/80 and that of the left eye: 20/20. Fundus examination of the right eye revealed a rhegmatogenous subclinical retinal detachment and vitreous hemorrhage 15 months after surgery for myopia, but the left fundus was normal. Barrier diod laser photocoagulation around the tear was done. Subclinical retinal detachment and vitreous hemorrhage resolved one month after barrier laser photocoagulation, but visual acuity of patient reduced to 3/200 due to development of macular pucker.
