OPTOS Ultra-widefield Imaging


OPTOS Ultra-widefield imaging is now available at Northern Sydney Cataract and optomap is a part of our comprehensive eye exam.

We are proud to announce our new fundus fluorescein angiogram available at our clinic. This allows us to provide full scope care for medical retina patients, including the treatment of AMD, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vascular occlusions. Optos produces ultra wide-field images with a field of view up to 200 degrees, compared to standard angiogram images of around 70 degrees. This enlarged field of view influences the management of conditions that affect the peripheral retina, in particular diabetic retinopathy and vascular occlusions.

Case Studies: Left Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion


Case Studies: Left Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion

A 40 year old patient presented with sudden onset of painless vision loss from his left eye. There were no associated ocular symptoms and he was systemically well, though moderately over weight.

On examination his corrected  acuities were right 6/6 and left 6/90. His intraocular pressures were normal. His anterior segments were unremarkable with clear ocular media and no rubeosis. Dilated fundus examination on the right was essentially unremarkable and on the left there were  retinal haemorrhages and cotton-wool spots, along the superotemporal arcade, consistent with a branch retinal vein occlusion. On OCT scanning, he had significant associated macular oedema (see figure 1).

NADER, Michael, 1859


The patient was diagnosed with a left branch retinal vein occlusion. The most common cause underlying  cause is atherosclerotic disease, associated with systemic hypertension. However, given this patient was only 40 years of age, obstructive sleep apnoea and pro-coagulant diseases need to be ruled out.

Treatment of intravitreal Lucentis injection therapy was instituted, and four weeks after the first injection his vision returned to 6/9 and his macular oedema dramatically improved, as seen in figure 2 below.
