Serial spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) images can be applied to monitor the effectiveness of systemic treatment in choroidal metastasis. Besides, it can be used as a guide to shifting to alternate therapy in nonresponding cases. SD-OCT was performed in a patient of primary adenocarcinoma of the lung with choroidal metastasis in the right eye. SD-OCT revealed neurosensory detachment overlying metastasis and involving macula. The patient was started on chemotherapy and external beam radiotherapy. After treatment completion, neurosensory detachment resolved completely with the regaining of normal foveal contour and improvement in visual acuity.
