JJ is a 26-year-old man who complained of reduced vision in his left eye over several weeks. Examination by his ophthalmologist found uncorrected vision OD of 20/20 and OS of 20/60, but this eye could be refracted to 20/20 with a +2.50 lens. Hertel exophthalmometry showed 2 mm of proptosis OS. Fundus examination found choroidal folds in this eye.
