An 18-year-old boy presented with decreased vision in his right eye following trauma while playing kabaddi 15 days back. On examination, his best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was counting fingers at 3 meters with an unusual giant macular tear and retinal detachment [Figure 1].

A giant macular tear at the macula following trauma is a rare occurrence. The exact mechanism is unknown however unequal vitreous attachment to all sides of the macula could be responsible for this configuration.[1]

As per review of the literature, two cases of macular tear have been reported in the literature.[1],[2] However a giant macular tear following blunt trauma has never been reported in the past.
