This patient came in for a routine eye examination. Retinal exam demonstrated a moderate sized retinal break in the right eye. You can also see areas of lattice degeneration superiorly. The patient is to undergo laser photocoagulation to prevent retinal detachment. THIS is why we dilate or perform the Optomap. People go blind every day from retinal detachments that could have been prevented if they had been caught as a small retinal break.
