A 69-year-old female presented with right eye vision of 20/120 Snellens. Ultrawide-field fundus imaging showed old vitreous hemorrhage with superotemporal sclerosed vessels post venous occlusion. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography revealed degenerative lamellar macular home (LMH) with lamellar hole-associated epiretinal proliferation (LHEP). The patient underwent surgery using vitrectomy with the embedding technique. Post surgery, good recovery of the foveal contour was achieved with vision improving to 20/40. LMH with LHEP can be a sequela of chronic macular edema in RVO.
