    Description
    Left eye of a 36-year-old male patient reveals a large macular scar and trace disc pallor 4 weeks after blunt injury with left orbital fracture in a road accident. Vitreous heme at presentation had obscured fundus visualisation and he was treated with intravenous steroids for presumed traumatic optic neuropathy due to relative afferent pupillary defect.
