Follicular thyroid cancer (FTC) is the second most common malignancy of the thyroid gland and comprise 10-15% of all thyroid tumors; the usual mode of spread is via hematogenous dissemination with the most common sites of metastases being the lungs and bones.4 A case is presented to demonstrate the unusual presentation of follicular thyroid cancer as bilateral choroidal metastases. Although exceptional, a diagnosis of choroidal metastases should be considered in any decline in visual acuity in patients with thyroid cancer.
