A 48-year-old woman presented with a 2-week history of metamorphopsia and reduced vision in her left eye. Visual acuity was 20/30 OS. Slit lamp biomicroscopy fundus evaluation revealed a dull foveal reflex. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) showed attachment of the posterior hyaloid to the macula and significant macular elevation. One month after presentation, visual complaints disappeared. OCT revealed complete posterior vitreous detachment and normal foveal thickness. Although rare, rapid spontaneous resolution of vitreomacular traction syndrome can occur. OCT is a helpful diagnostic tool for following these patients.
