High electrical current can cause serious ocular injuries resulting in permanent vision loss, besides life-threatening complications. A 56-year-old man presented with diminution of vision in both eyes. The past medical history revealed occupational exposure to high-voltage electrical current 10 years ago. Fundus showed a foveal scar in the left eye and a dull foveal reflex in the right eye. Optical coherence tomography revealed foveal thinning in the right eye and foveal scarring in the left eye. This report thus highlights a case of dissimilar electric shock maculopathies depending on the distance of the eye from the point of entry of electric current.
