Patient JM presented with symptoms of right metamorphosia in April 2014. Her best corrected visual accuracy with a low hypermetropic correction was R 6/9 and L 6/6.
Following a complete ophthalmic work-up, including an OCT examination, a diagnosis of right vitreomacular traction (VMT) was made.
The patient was appropriately counselled and a further review was scheduled for six months unless the patient noticed a change in symptoms.
In this case, a repeated OCT examination was all that was indicated for the patient. At her follow-up review six months later, her symptoms had completely resolved with best corrected vision returning back to 6/6 in each eye.
The OCT images show the initial VMT followed by a natural resolution.
