A 45-year-old man presented with floaters in his left eye and headaches for 2 months. He experienced left temporal field loss when lifting heavy objects. He took no medications and denied prior surgery, eye trauma, or pain. His best-corrected visual acuity was 20/25 OD and 20/30 OS. The only abnormalities on bilateral eye examination were 1+ levels of anterior vitreous cells and trace levels of posterior vitreous cells in the left eye, without vitreous haze, and a left retinal detachment extending from 1:30 to 10:00 o’clock, with macular involvement and without visible retinal tears. There were 360° left choroidal detachments.
