Abstract

Peripheral hemorrhagic detachments of the retinal pigment epithelium after choroidal neovascularization in age-related macular degeneration in the fellow eye have been reported only rarely. We report a case of a 75-year-old male with such involvement who presented with the acute onset of a shower of floaters in the right eye 9 months after argon laser photocoagulation of juxtafoveal choroidal neovascularization in his left eye. The peripheral hemorrhagic detachment resolved within one month.
