A 28-year-old male patient underwent vitrectomy with silicone oil (1,500 centistokes) for an old retinal detachment with giant retinal tear with proliferative vitreoretinopathy D2-D3. Silicone oil removal was done 6 months later. Following silicone oil removal, re-proliferation was noted temporal to macula giving the appearance of a pseudo-second optic disc [Figure 1] and [Figure 2].

Silicone oil epiretinal membranes are seen in association with long-standing emulsified oil as it causes retinal inflammation through the spongy layer.[1] The incidence of re-proliferation varies from 7% to 19% depending upon the viscosity of silicone oil used.[2] The proliferated membrane may resemble an optic disc as in our case.
