A 20-year old presented with visual acuity 20/200 (both eye). Anterior segment findings and intraocular pressures were unremarkable. Fundus examination revealed bilateral retinal fold extending from disc to inferotemporal periphery, with retinal blood vessels on the fold [Figure 1]. Fovea was not discernible. Pigmentary change was noted along the fold, more toward periphery.

First described by Mann, congenital retinal folds (CRF) extend temporally in 92.5%, have poor vision, and 75% are unilateral., 30% eyes may develop devastating posterior segment complications., Common causes of CRF are retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR), Norrie disease, etc.,,, Early diagnosis and intervention are essential to preserve useful vision., Noncontact ultra-widefield retinal imaging (Optos) of bilateral CRF [Figure 1] has never been described in the scientific literature previously and may be useful in the follow-up of those eyes.
