Serous retinal detachment (RD) is a rare complication of pre-eclampsia in pregnancy. We report a case of a 23-year-old primigravida with pre-eclampsia in her third trimester of pregnancy developing bilateral RD at term. After delivery, there was spontaneous resolution of the serous RD. Her best-corrected visual acuity was 6/6 in the right eye and 6/9 in the left eye on 1-year follow-up. Management of pre-eclampsia-induced serous RD is conservative, and the prognosis is good.
