Dome-shaped macula (DSM) is a recently described entity characterized by convex protrusion of the macula within a posterior staphyloma. Serous macular detachment is the most common complication, but the condition often remains stable despite lack of intervention. Spontaneous resolution of the condition has also been reported in many cases. The condition may be observed with periodic review with optical coherence tomography (OCT). We report a 56-year-old Omani woman, a high myope without significant ocular complaints who was incidentally detected to have bilateral DSM with serous macular detachment and review the literature regarding its diagnosis, pathogenesis, and treatment options. As the patient was asymptomatic, she was followed with serial OCTs for 6 months and is stable in terms of visual acuity and subretinal fluid.
