Abstract A vortex varix consists of a bulging of the vortex ampulla and overlying retina. This dynamic retinal finding can change with the patient's direction of gaze. The clinician can often visualize a red, elevated lesion that appears and disappears thus, making the diagnosis confusing. An overview of vortex varices, methods of diagnosis and differential diagnoses will be discussed.
