A 22-year-old female optometry student presented with a one-day history of a contusion injury to the right eye with blurred vision inferiorly. Slitlamp examination showed mild anterior chamber reaction. Angle recession was visible by gonioscopy and dilated fundus examination revealed commotio retinae with macular involvement and vitreal haemorrhages. Peripheral retinal tears were later detected. The management of a patient with a history of a contusion injury is discussed.
