To report the usefulness of wide field imaging and angiography in patients with Coat’s disease.
In 5 consecutive patients, wide field imaging using scanning laser ophthalmoscopy and angiography (Optomap) was performed before treatment. The laser was performed on the basis of wide field images. Once the ophthalmologist considered that the treatment was complete, the imaging was repeated including late phase angiographic images. After reviewing the images, the ophthalmologist decided whether further treatment was required.
Among all patients, wide field imaging enabled to monitor the localization of laser treatment with respect to the vascular abnormalities and non perfusion areas displayed on angiography. In all cases, additional laser treatment was performed on the basis of image lecture although the treatment had been considered to be sufficient by the ophthalmologist.
Wide field imaging and angiography enables to target laser treatment in Coat’s disease.
