A 30-year-old male patient presented with diminution of vision post electric shock injury. His right eye had a fibrinous reaction in the anterior chamber which resolved with topical steroids. Left eye had a macular cyst which resolved spontaneously, and a full thickness retinal defect extending 3 clock hours with shallow subretinal fluid which was barraged [Figure 1]. Macular holes, macular cysts and retinal detachments have been observed post electric shock injuries with surgical intervention needed for the detachments.,,,, In our case, the retinal detachment was managed conservatively with laser barrage as it was localised and had no posterior vitreous detachment.
|Figure 1: Fundus picture OS (a) shows the macular cyst with the temporal retinal detachment with the retinal tear. OCT shows the macular cyst (b). Fundus picture OS (c) post barrage. OCT shows a decrease in the size of macular cyst with disorganisation of the retinal layers (d)|
