Contributor: David Phillips, MD

This middle-aged male presented with an abrupt decrease in vision in the right eye 4 days prior. Note the retinal whitening, classic cherry red spot, and scatted cotton wool spots. The OCT shows inner retinal edema in the right eye (OD) compared to the normal retinal OCT in the left (OS). Also note the delayed filling of the macular arteries on the fluorescein angiogram.
