  1. Progression of Geographic Atrophy

    These retinal images are from an 84 year old white male who presented to the Moran Eye Center in 2008.  He was diagnosed and followed for dry age-related macular degeneration (AMD) with serial autofluorescent photographs showing progression of geographic atrophy of the RPE from 2008 to 2014. These images were prepared by James Gilman of the Moran Eye Center.   […]

  2. Retinal Astrocytic Hamartoma

    This is a 58 year old white female with a retinal astrocytic hamartoma on her right optic nerve.  Retinal astrocytic hamartomas are glial tumors of the retinal nerve fiber layer arising from retinal astrocytes. This animated GIF file illustrates the height of the hamartoma and is another example of where animated gifs can be a fantastic […]

  3. Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy

    We had a recent case of Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy here at the Moran Eye Center, imaged here as an ICG angiogram (large image here).  Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy is an uncommon disorder of the choroidal circulation summarized in the Ciardella et. al. paper Polypoidal Choroidal Vasculopathy. “The primary abnormality involves the choroidal circulation, and the characteristic lesion is […]

  4. Optic Nerve Head Drusen

    Drusen in the retina is a common finding in aging retina, forming deposits in the retina between Bruch’s membrane and the retinal pigment epithelium.  Most people over 40 start to accumulate some drusen, but increasing amounts of drusen formation can indicate pathological developments associated with age related macular degeneration, (AMD).  Cristine Curcio has been chasing […]

  5. Acute Zonal Occult Outer Reinopathy (AZOOR)

    This photo (enlarged image) shows peripheral vasculitis in a patient with Acute Zonal Occult Outer Retinopathy (AZOOR). Five images were taken in each eye and composited together to show the peripheral changes taking place in the mid arterivenous phase of the fluorescein angiogram. This image was made by James Gilman of the Moran Eye Center using a 102 […]

  7. Vitreoretinal Lymphoma

    Vitreoretinal lymphoma is a form of central nervous system (CNS) lymphoma that often is misdiagnosed as uveitis, but is the most common form of intraocular lymphoma.  A proper diagnosis of vitreoretinal lymphoma requires the histological identification of lymphoma typed cells within the vitreous of the globe or retina which can be a trick due to […]

  8. Vogt Koyanagi Harada Syndrome (VKH)

    This imagery is from a patient with Vogt Koyanagi Harada Syndrome (VKH).  VKH is a presumed autoimmune disease that presents with waxing and waning subretinal fluid.  There is chromic uveitis with other neurological and dermatological symptoms.  The precise mechanism of the disease is unknown, though it is thought that the autoimmune involvement of melanocytes in […]

  10. Complicated Retinal Detatchment

    This set of images (click the image above to enlarge) are optical coherence tomography (OCT) images of retained perfluoro-octane (PFO)  droplets after repair of a complicated retinal detachment.   PFO is a good surgical tool to help reattach the retina as they force sub retinal fluid out of any retinal tears and helps adhere the […]
