A case of an accidental exposure to a high intensity Q-switched infrared laser beam is described. A paramacular burn, splinter hemorrhages on the disc margin, and vitreous hemorrhage were the initial findings. Later, a paramacular pucker developed, causing reduction in visual acuity to 6/12. Microvascular accident on the disc margin is assumed to be the cause of a paracentral scotoma located fairly far from the image area.
