A 67-year-old female patient presented with decreased vision in left eye since 1 month. Best corrected visual acuity was 6/18 in the left eye on Snellen's chart. Fundus examination in the left eye showed blurred disk margin with vitreous traction around the disk and the fovea causing vitreopapillary traction and vitreomacular traction (VMT) [Figure 1]a. Optical coherence tomography showed posterior hyaloid attachment over the disk and the fovea causing intraretinal schisis. The detached hyaloid formed a bridge between the disk and foveal attachments [Figure 1]b. It is important to identify vitreopapillary traction as it can cause optic neuropathy, an additional cause of visual impairment, apart from VMT.[1]
