A man in his late 30s with a history of proliferative diabetic retinopathy presented for evaluation of sudden-onset painless blurry vision of the right eye. His ocular history included nonclearing vitreous hemorrhage in the right eye requiring pars plana vitrectomy, panretinal photocoagulation, multiple treatments with intravitreous bevacizumab, and cataract extraction with placement of an intraocular lens (IOL) into the capsular bag approximately 4 years ago. At his routine follow-up visit 2 weeks prior, the proliferative diabetic retinopathy was quiescent, and his Snellen visual acuity was 20/20 OD with manifest refraction of −1.50 + 0.25 × 180. Examination of the anterior segment at that time was unremarkable.
