A 47 year-old woman presented with complaints of bright flashes of light, decreased vision, and pain OD for one week. Her past ocular history was significant for cataract surgery three years prior and intraocular lens exchange two years ago. She presented to her primary ophthalmologist one year prior with similar symptoms. At that time, her visual acuity OD was 20/200 and dilated fundoscopic examination revealed a temporal macula off retinal detachment. The patient underwent scleral buckling, endolaser photocoagulation, and SF6 gas exchange. Her retina was attached up to five months prior to current presentation when she developed an inferior retinal detachment. She subsequently underwent IOL removal, repeat vitrectomy, and silicone oil tamponade.
