A white man in his 30s with a remote history of right eye enucleation following globe trauma presented to our clinic in July 2014 with decreased visual acuity in the left eye. He described a history of initially intermittent (lasting hours to days) then constant (for the past 6-8 weeks) central and peripheral blurred vision in the left eye. He reported no headaches, numbness, weakness, eye pain, hearing loss, or other neurologic issues. Eight years earlier, he had sustained a fireworks injury to his right eye followed by globe repair and enucleation within 3 days. He had no other significant medical or ocular history.
