Adult Onset Foveal Macular Vitelliform Dystrophy With SDOCT

Adult Onset Foveal Macular Vitelliform Dystrophy With SDOCT

This Lesson is a collection of 3 cases that highlight adult onset foveal macular vitelliform dystrophy with SDOCT.

Take Home Points:

- dystrophies present with symmetry while degenerations usually present with asymmetry
- dystrophies are usually more insidious in their progression
- in these cases vision is reduced by a thinning of the retina overlying the dystrophy

 -Creates a black and white photo of the layer that you designate
- Differentiates layers of the retina and choroid
- Allows precise location of the disease/dystrophic process
- Educational tool for interns/residents and patients and generates movies
