Optic disc pit is an excavation of the optic nerve head usually seen in association with other abnormalities of the optic nerve, peripapillary retina, or posterior vitreous detachment. In 50% the cases, it might be associated with serous macular detachment. The prevailing theory that explains this disorder is that subretinal fluid which is derived from liquefied vitreous passes through the optic disc pit and elevates the macula. In this study, we report a case of serous macular detachment complicating optic disc pit in a young male patient treated surgically without internal limiting membrane peeling and showed dramatic improvement of vision after 1 year.
