Abstract. A 65-year-old female presented with sudden ocular pain and visual loss since 3 days before. Her visual acuity was hand motion right and 0.8 corrected by-15 diopters left. The intraocular pressure was 6 mmHg right and 13 mmHg left. The depth of her right anterior chamber was 5.6 mm. The right eye had hyphema with fibrinous exudate. The chamber angle appeared normal. The left fundus showed myopic changes. The axial length was 33.57 mm right and 31.05 mm left. Echography showed total retinal detachment in the right eye. During vitreous surgery and lens extraction,a retinal break was detected inferior to the optic disc. There was extensive vitreoretinal adhesion. The retina became reattached resulting in the final visual acuity of 0.3. This case illustrates that hyphema may lead to detection of retinal detachment in a high myopic eye.
