Macular Detachment

A 34-year-old Mongolian man presented with a dense cataract in his left eye. There was a history of some sort of systemic infection 5 years previously to which he ascribed the onset of visual problems in the eye. The visual acuity in this eye was measured at light perception while uncorrected vision in his right eye was 20/80. There was a 2+ afferent defect of the left pupil. Slit-lamp examination showed a white cataract OS and a clear lens OD. Cycloplegic retinoscopy revealed a refractive error in the right eye of -3.00 +5.00 × 90.
