A 27-year-old-male accidentally electrocuted himself from an overhead transmission (alternating current) line while working and presented as a case of post electrocution bilateral outer retinal macular hole [[Figure 1]a-right, d-left- white arrow] which was confirmed on swept-source optical coherence tomography [[Figure 1]b-right, e-left]. Retinal periphery didn't show any other abnormalities [[Figure 1]c-right, f-left]. The patient was explained guarded prognosis and was advised monthly follow up. Complications like cataract, vitreous hemorrhage, vascular occlusions, retinal detachments, macular cyst, macular holes, optic neuropathy and atrophy post electrocution can lead to vision loss.[1],[2],[3],[4],[5] We report a case of bilateral outer retinal hole following accidental electrocution at work place.
