A 70-year-old man with metamorphopsia and a visual acuity of 20/50 OD received a diagnosis of epiretinal membrane (ERM) with an incidental finding of retinal whitening along the inferotemporal vascular arcade (Figure, A). The patient underwent 25-gauge pars plana vitrectomy with ERM peeling, irrelevant to the area of the opacity. At 6 months postoperatively, total regression appeared on fundus photography and optical coherence tomography results (Figure, B). His best-corrected visual acuity was 20/25 OD.
