The incidence of choroidal metastases from lung adenocarcinoma without a history of primary tumor detection was rarely reported. A 59-year-old male presented with diminution of vision in the left eye 10 days after starting the antitubercular treatment. The vision deteriorated dramatically, and ancillary tests revealed a metastatic lesion in the left eye from adenocarcinoma of the lung. This case report highlights the possibility of intraocular metastases in adults who present with symptoms of blurring of vision of short duration.
