Bilateral retinal detachment imaged by Mirante color photography and retro mode illumination

Published:November 26, 2020DOI:
      A highly myopic 45-year-old man with bilateral rhegmatogenous retinal detachments was imaged using Mirante Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (SLO) device by Nidek (Nidek Co, Ltd., Gamagori, Nidek). (A, B) The widefield color fundus photographs show the full extent of the retinal detachment in both eyes and peripheral retinal breaks. A large horseshoe tear and a smaller tear are observed superotemporally (A), whereas a single break is observed superotemporally (B). The prominent corrugations/retinal folds associated with the detachment are clearly evident. (C, D) Retinal folds and cystoid macular edema in the right eye are highlighted on the retro mode illumination image (C) and difficult to discern on the color fundus photograph.
