Examination
Visual acuities without correction were 6/18 (20/60) OD and 6/24 (20/80) OS with no improvement with pinhole.

The anterior segment examination was normal.

Dilated fundoscopic examination showed bilateral foveal preretinal hemorrhages and bilateral scattered nerve fiber layer hemorrhages. The foveal hemorrhages were beginning to organize at the time of presentation to our department.

Blood pressure, blood glucose and complete blood count were normal. Specifically, there was no evidence of anemia.
