DJ is a 34-year-old man who noted flashes of light in the right eye for 2 days and then a “lacy cobweb with lots of little black specks” on the day of presentation at his ophthalmologist’s office. Examination revealed visual acuity of 20/200 with some variability as he moved his eye around. Ophthalmoscopy found a 2+ vitreous hemorrhage that obscured visualization of the peripheral inferior temporal fundus. Some vitreous membrane formation was noted but retinal detail was hazy.
