A 45-year-old Caucasian myopic woman with a severe vision impairment (20/320) in the left eye due to a macula-off rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RRD) underwent vitrectomy with silicone oil tamponade followed by an inferior relaxing retinectomy with heavy silicone oil tamponade during the second procedure for recurrence of RRD due to proliferative vitreoretinopathy. Four weeks after the second surgery, visual acuity was 20/200 and the patient complained metamorphopsia in the same eye due to a large full-thickness macular hole. A perfluorocarbon liquid-assisted inverted inner limiting membrane-flap technique was performed. Visual acuity improved to 20/80 after closing of macular hole and partial recovery of outer retinal layers at 3 months from the last surgery.
