Above is a montaged Optomap image of a left eye that has undergone retinal detachment surgery with the placement of a scleral buckle. There is an large artifactual shadow on the left side but the ring shadow over the macula is from a posterior subcapsular cataract that has developed subsequent to the surgery.
This is an autofluorescence picture of the same eye. It clearly delineates the boundaries of the orginal retinal detachment in the nasal retina, barely sparing the macula. The patient’s vision is 20/25, even with the cataract present.
