An 82-year-old gentleman underwent pars plana vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade for rhegmatogenous retinal detachment elsewhere five years ago. At presentation to us, his intraocular pressure (IOP) was 40 mmHg and best-corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was hand movements close to face. Slit-lamp examination showed hyperoleon in the anterior chamber (AC). The retina was attached with a hyperoleon-like appearance over the optic disc, obscuring the superior half of the disc [Figure 1]. The inferior half of the disc was pale with peripapillary atrophy. He underwent silicone oil removal for IOP reduction. Silicone oil emulsification causing formation of hyperoleon or inverse-hypopyon in AC is a common entity.[1–3] However, such an appearance over the optic disc is rarely described and is interesting.
