We report a case of sudden onset bilateral diminution of vision in a young lady with type 1 diabetes. She was administered intravenous fluids for correction of diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) prior to onset of her ocular symptoms. Dramatic resolution of macular edema was noted within a very short period after correction of fluid input–output ratio. Visual acuity was restored to baseline after 3 days without any active ocular intervention.
