MV is a 55-year-old diabetic who was noted to have early neovascularization of the left optic disc and was advised to return in 4 months to monitor this condition with the possibility of panretinal photocoagulation if it increased. He returned on an emergency basis 3 weeks later with the complaint of loss of central vision in that eye. His visual acuity was 20/25 OD and he could only count fingers in the left eye. The anterior and mid-vitreous were relatively clear but there was preretinal blood obscuring the macular area.
