      A beautiful image with crystal clear media! The commotion retinae looks like it is resolving and quite diffuse. It would be good to know if there was avulsion of the vitreous base(common in blunt trauma and peripheral dialysis). I suspect choroidal rupture which typically occurs concentric tot he optic nerve or macula. Please consider submitting a f/u image when the blood clears. Clinical details of when the image was taken in relation to the injury are important. Terrific capture Nichole. Kudos to the PRS team. Keep sending!
