Optos ultra-widefield retinal imaging can acquire high-quality, clinical images of infants and young children. This non-contact device does not require anaesthesia, and is shown to capture up to 75 per cent more abnormal peripheral pathology in paediatric patients compared to conventional imaging methods, when used to detect, diagnose and manage retinopathy of prematurity,1,2,3,4 incontinentia pigmenti,5 uveitis, hereditary retinal dystrophies, retinal vascular diseases, trauma, infection, tumours,6 familial exudative vitreoretinopathy (FEVR), Coats’ disease7 and MARFAN syndrome.8 Ultra-widefield fluorescein and indocyanine green angiography are also available to help improve the diagnosis and treatment of high-risk paediatric retinal diseases by allowing doctors to visualise more pathology in the far periphery that may have been missed with conventional imaging.
