This patient experienced blunt eye injury after bungee cord recoil. Color fundus montage photograph of the right eye shows a macular hole and peripapillary choroidal ruptures extending into the macula. There is subretinal hemorrhage and fluid inferior to the macular hole and in the peripapillary region. Optical coherence tomography (Heidelberg) demonstrates a partial-thickness macular hole with subretinal heme.
