    This 20-year-old wrestler sustained a sharp powerful blow to his right eye from his opponent’s thumb. One hour later he saw hundreds of black specs in his vision and was found to have this dialysis of his retina in the upper nasal quadrant. Note the triangular piece of retina in the center that remained attached to the ora serrata causing the retinal flap to resemble a man’s flared shirt collar.
