This case takes place in Indiana and involves a female patient who presented to her optometrist with complaints of objects floating in her vision. She was examined by an optometrist who opined that the condition was self-limiting and did not require referral to a specialist. Shortly after leaving the facility the patient suffered a sudden loss of vision in the affected eye. It was later diagnosed that she had suffered retinal detachment. Despite surgical treatment the patient remains virtually blind in the affected eye.
