Enhanced visualisation of acute macular neuroretinopathy by spectral imaging

L K Tingsgaard, B Sander, M Larsen


PURPOSE: To report photographic findings from a case of acute macular neuroretinopathy.

METHODS: Fundus photography on color transparencies, red-free digital CCD-recording, and laser-scanning ophthalmoscopy with monochromatic red and blue illumination.

RESULTS: The visibility of the retinal lesions was markedly enhanced by narrowing the illumination bandwidth and by the stray light suppression of the confocal laser scanning ophthalmoscope.

CONCLUSIONS: The diagnosis of acute macular neuroretinopathy, and possibly other chorioretinal diseases as well, can be facilitated by multispectral imaging and stray-light reduction optics.
