A 42-year-old female presented with sudden diminution of vision in the right eye (RE) for 1 day. The vision was counting fingers with Relative afferent pupillary defect (RAPD) (RE) and 20/20 (LE). Fundus revealed dilated tortuous arteries and veins in all quadrants with premacular and submacular hemorrhage. Fundus fluorescein angiography (FFA) showed nonleaking vascular loops with hypofluorescence at the macula. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) revealed localized posterior hyaloid detachment with hemorrhage. We report this unilateral case of retinal racemose hemangioma with multilayered hemorrhage managed with pneumatic displacement and revealed retinal artery macroaneurysm in the background. On follow-up there was development of localized vitreomacular traction. It was treated with Yttrium Aluminium Garnet (YAG) hyaloidotomy, which improved vision to 20/80.
