A 52-year-old male was hit in the right eye by a bottle cork, resulting in a mild vitreous hemorrhage [Figure 1]. Blood was seen on retroillumination to be trapped in Berger's space (potential space between the crystalline lens and vitreous). No retinal tears nor detachments were found and vision was 20/25. Two weeks after presentation, vision returned to 20/20. Full resolution of the vitreous hemorrhage was obtained 8 weeks after the blunt trauma.
