A 55-year-old female presented with a defective vision since childhood. The fundus examination revealed a well-demarcated macular excavation of 2 1/2 disc diameters. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) of both eyes revealed a bowl-like depression at the macula, absence of retinal pigment epithelium, and choroid with atrophic neurosensory retina. She was diagnosed as a case of bilateral macular coloboma. We wish to stress OCT and multimodal imaging's importance to diagnose macular colobomas and differentiate it from other disorders of the macula.
