Purpose: To illustrate the utility of ultrawide-angle fundus imaging in documenting the clinical course of a retinal detachment. Design: Observational case report. Method: A 20-year-old man with high myopia and a blind fellow eye noted symptoms of retinal detachment and was imaged with an ultrawide-angle fundus imaging device (Optos P200). Imaging was performed after scleral buckling and before and after additional vitreoretinal surgery. Results: Ultrawide-angle images were useful in delineating the extent of retinal detachment even in the presence of intraocular gas. Conclusion: The ability to rapidly image the ocular fundus well anterior to the equator facilitates clinical management and may prove particularly useful in electronic record keeping.
