optomap® Recognizing Pathology
This material is designed as a searchable reference resource to support clinical decision-making. The information contained here should be used as general guidance when viewing optomap and OCT images from Optos devices. The differential diagnosis should be made under the direction of the responsible physician. These images were taken on the latest ultra-widefield optomap devices.
White without Pressure
White without pressure is a retinal phenomenon produced by vitreous traction on the surface of the retina. Because it is a superficial phenomenon, it will be more apparent on the green separation. It appears as a whitish degeneration (film) on the retina and typically there is a dark zone along the posterior border (often appears red on binocular indirect ophthalmoscopy which may give the appearance of a pseudo-retinal tear). It may have a rather scalloped posterior margin.
