An asymptomatic male patient in his 40s with no relevant ocular, medical, or family history was referred for assessment of a retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) defect in his right eye by an optometrist. Visual acuity was 20/20 OU. An examination of his right eye showed a pigment epithelial defect (PED), and with reference to optical coherence tomography (OCT) imaging, he was diagnosed with central serous chorioretinopathy–related (CSCR) PED (Figure 1). His left eye showed no retinal abnormalities. He was treated conservatively and monitored for progression.
