MV is a 75-year-old man with a history of dry macular degeneration treated with oral antioxidants. He noted some distortion of the vision in his left eye but delayed making an appointment with his ophthalmologist. He was seen 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. Clinical examination found moderate vitreous hemorrhage with an obscured view of the posterior pole.
