Fundus Photography - PDR & Asteroid Hyalosis


This is a composite of two fundus images taken of THE SAME patient, a 39 yr. old African female. The left image is ocular dexter and the right image is ocular sinister. I just thought the differences between the two were pretty interesting.

The right eye(left image) shows proliferative diabetic retinopathy(PDR), while the left eye(right image) shows extreme asteroid hyalosis.

we have just started a small study in the San Francisco Bay area to treat Asteroid Hyalosis -- would be interested in knowing as to what percentage of patients with AH have the view of the fundus obscured to such an extent that the fundus cannot be properly viewed.
