An asymptomatic, hypermetropic man in his 40s with a suspected macula-on retinal detachment underwent ultra wide-field laser scanning imaging (California P200DTx; Optos). This revealed a bullous right supero-temporal retinoschisis with “honeycomb” degeneration, dark inner layer vessels, and a rolled edge containing an outer leaf break extending posteriorly (Figure). The left eye had a long-term inferotemporal schisis detachment, which was treated with barrier laser retinopexy at its posterior border.
