A 35-year-old otherwise healthy male, with diminution of right eye vision, was found to have a hypermetropic reflex [Figure 1]a, which increased in magnitude on slight inferior gaze [Figure 1]b. Fundus showed a choroidal hemangioma [Figure 1]c. “Braley's sign” is classically described for differential tonometry on different gazes seen in thyroid orbitopathy. We would like to describe our sign as “Braley-like” for differential Bruckner reflex on different gazes because of the differential refractive error attributed to induced hyperopia by the mass and adjacent exudative fluid. It can prove to be a good screening tool for optometrists or peripheral health workers who can then appropriately refer the patients.
