A 52-year-old male presented with defective vision in the left eye (OS) for 1 month. He had undergone sectoral pan-retinal photocoagulation (PRP) for the branch retinal vein occlusion (BRVO) in OS 3 months ago. The fundus examination revealed sea fan-shaped neovascularization of the optic disk [Figure 1]a, which was documented on fundus fluorescein angiography [Figure 1]b. He underwent additional PRP in that eye. In the follow-up visits, the neovascularization regressed, but an epiretinal membrane (ERM) developed over the macula. He underwent surgical removal of the ERM. Sea fan neovascularization has traditionally been described in sickle-cell retinopathy and is rare in BRVO.[1]
