- Routine binocular indirect ophthalmoscopy (B10) or optos® imaging often detects peripheral retinal lesions.
- But is the lesion flat or elevated?
- If elevated, is it a solid lesion, a cyst, or a membrane?
- If a membrane, is it a retinal detachment (RD), retinoschisis (RS) or choroidal detachment (CD)?
- This week’s case is about an asymptomatic optometrist who became concerned when a routine optomap® revealed two large round lesions In the temporal periphery of his right eye.
- Both OCT and B-scan prove to be helpful in determining if a lesion is solid or cystic and in the differential diagnosis between RD vs. RS vs. CD.
