A 45-year-old female with proliferative diabetic retinopathy and tractional retinal detachment in her right eye was operated for vitrectomy surgery with silicone oil tamponade. She was advised prone position in post-operative period. With the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown, she couldn't follow up and maintained her prone position for most of the resting period, as vaguely advised on teleconsultation. When finally seen after five months, she had corneal blood staining in the form of concentric rings [Figure 1]a and [Figure 1]b. The rings signified episodes of re-bleed into the anterior chamber with intervening lucid intervals, all centred around the most dependent part of the cornea due to the prolonged prone position.
