Purpose: To describe a new technique for imaging pathologic changes over time in the fundus: Motion Opthalmoscopy of the Macula (MOM). Clinical examples utilizing the fusion of separate digital images into a sequential, clinical course will be presented. Methods: Commerciaally available software was used to fuse in a movie sequential digital fundus photographs. Results: Three movies demonstrating the clinical course of three patients with macular disease. The first movie shows spontaneous resolution of a submacular hemorrhage in a patient with polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy, over 1-year follow-up. The second movie illustrates the resolution of a serous-sanguineos neurosensory macular detachment in a patient with idiopathic perifoveal telangectasia, after treatment with a single intravitreal injection of anecortave acetate. The follow-up was 1 year. The third movie shows the clinical course of a patient with retinal angiomatous proliferation, a variant of age related macular degeneration, over 1-year period. Conclusion: MOM is a simple but innovative way of showing the clinical course of a patient over time. It is ideal for a web site presentation, as well as interactive presentation to a group at meetings. It is also a very effective mean of education for the patient itself.
