Abstract

Bilateral retinal detachments are a rare complication of preeclampsia. We present a case report of a patient with an unknown pregnancy who presented with acute bilateral vision loss and elevated blood pressure. Point-of-care ocular ultrasound revealed bilateral retinal detachments. She was diagnosed with severe preeclampsia and taken for an urgent caesarean section with the delivery of a 26-week-old infant.
