Retinal Tear with Subretinal Fluid

KP is a 32-year-old moderately myopic man who presented with the history of several days of flashing lights and “cobwebs with lots of tiny little dots” in his right eye. His vision was somewhat impaired by the floaters. Examination showed best corrected vision in his right eye of 20/50 by moving his eye back and forth to see through the floaters. The visual acuity in the left eye was 20/20. Fundus examination found a mild vitreous hemorrhage in the right eye with a Weiss ring in the anterior vitreous. There was some clumping of blood inferiorly with obscuration of the view of the retina in the inferotemporal quadrant.
