A 36-year-old male presented with complaints of distorted vision and positive scotoma in the left eye (OS) for the past 15 days. On examination, the best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/40 in OS. Fundus examination of OS revealed central serous chorioretinopathy [Figure 1]a and normal study in the right eye. The rare interesting feature in this patient is the photoreceptor layer detachment subfoveally, which is seen hanging from the outer retinal layer with subretinal fibrin, visually similar to the oozing honey from the beehive [Figure 1]b, [Figure 1]c, [Figure 1]d. This is an important prognostic indicator, and the patient may require early treatment intervention to prevent loss of photoreceptor layer integrity.,,,,
