A 21-year-old woman presented with foggy vision of her right eye that began 5 months prior. She had daily frontal headaches without any associated visual aura, numbness, or weakness. She had a history of “multiple lasers” of her right eye and blindness of her left eye from an unrepaired retinal detachment. Her medical history included a pheochromocytoma, bilateral adrenal gland resection, and a pancreatic cyst. Her father had a history of retinal detachment in his right eye; her 2 siblings did not have any medical or ocular issues.
