    Using OCTA in optometric practice

    New technology allows for better visualization


    Dilated retinal examination revealed multiple intermediate-sized drusen OD and a grayish-green lesion with associated hemorrhage OS (Figures 1 A, B.) A CNVM OS was suspected, and OCT, OCTA, and traditional FA were performed on the patient.

    The widefield OCT of the right eye was essentially normal (Figure 2), displaying drusen with no apparent fluid. The OCT of the left eye revealed a CNVM with associated vitreomacular adhesion with central retinal thickness of 417 µm, evident on both the widefield and raster (Figures 3A and B.)

    A 3.0 mm x 3.0 mm OCTA demonstrated the presence of a small CNVM, seen in the outer retina and choroid capillary en face images (Figures 4A, B.)
