The objective of the study was to report a case of preeclamptic pregnant woman with bilateral serous macular detachment following cesarean section. This is a case report of a 29-year-old pregnant woman with bilateral serous macular detachment following cesarean section due to severe preeclampsia. The patient applied with a complaint of sudden vision blur in both eyes after an emergent cesarean delivery. Ophthalmologic examination revealed visual acuity of 1/10 on the right eye and 4/10 on the left eye. She had bilateral serous macular detachment. Within 10 days, visual acuity improved to 7/10 in both eyes. Optical coherence tomography revealed disappearance of the subretinal fluid with distribution of retinal photoreceptor layer in both eyes. Preeclampsia may lead to a transient serous macular detachment with visual sequelae.
