A 62-year-old white woman with typical senile retinoschisis in the lower temporal quadrant of each eye showed spontaneous, simultaneous disappearance of the intraretinal lesions in both eyes. The left eye with the larger lesion showed a corresponding absolute field defect which persisted. The existence of such cases strengthens the justification of conservatism in the management of this disease.
