A 51-year-old female had macula-off bullous rhegmatogenous retinal detachment. She underwent vitrectomy with C3F8 tamponade. Two weeks later, examination demonstrated a macular fold [Figure 1]a. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) demonstrated a hairpin-like retinal fold [Figure 1]b., The macular fold resolved with an inferiorly shifted retinal fold after vitrectomy, subretinal balanced salt solution injection, and SF6 tamponade. Fundus autofluorescence imaging showed hyperautofluorescence (arrowheads) over the previous macular fold and hypoautofluorescence (arrows) in the inferiorly shifted retinal fold [Figure 1]c. OCT revealed focal hyperreflective lesions in the outer retina [Figure 1]d. The post-vitrectomy macular folds can be successfully resolved by further vitrectomy.,
