Jerome Sherman, OD, FAAO Jerome Sherman, O.D., is perhaps optometry's most prolific writer, publishing over 650 clinical articles, research manuscripts, book chapters and two CDs. He is senior author of three books that were published in 2007, and has delivered over three thousand lectures both nationally and internationally. He has served as a

Comments and Conclusions • AF is proving to be a very useful non-invasive technology to document abnormalities of the RPE and related photoreceptors. • Uitra-widefleld AF is proving valuable in disorders affecting large zones of the retina such as in many of the retinal degenerations. • Screening of young children in families with retinal degeneratlons
Case 11: Optomap® Color Fundus and AF Comparison OD and OS KEY: Color Optomap Auto Fluorescence These images were taken on the very well lit floor of a major trade show without pupillary dilation. This pattern of retinal degeneration has rarely, if ever, been presented. What is even more unusual is the fact
Case 11: Optomap® FAF Image OS Similar AF findings are present in the LE.
Case 11: Optomap® Color Fundus Image OS Note similar findings in the LE. The macula here resembles age related macula degeneration, specifically geographic atrophy of the RPE but it is really part of much larger degeneration.
Case 11: Optomap® FAF Image OD The AF reveals a normal mid periphery, a bright ring of hyper-AF around the hypo-AF macula and large, irregular zones of hypo AF in the far periphery. There is also a subtle ring of mild hyper-AF nasally, bordering on the zone of hypo-AF. The hyper-AF zones suggest that
Case 11: Optomap® Color Fundus Image OD Case 11: A middle aged optometrist presented for imaging at a major meeting. Since losing his central vision, hehas specialized in low vision. BCVA was reported to be in the 20/400 range OU. The fundus is unusual for retinaldegenerations like RP since disorders like RP begin in
