The Art of Eyes: Part 4

Choroideremia

“Anticipation and timing is key in my work as both a professional sports photographer and as an ophthalmic photographer. Anticipating and capturing the dynamic flow of fluorescein through retinal blood vessels is important when performing angiography. In this case of choroideremia, both the retinal and choroidal vessels are visible along with arc-like remnants of what remains of the RPE.”

Joe Territo, senior photographer, Retina Associates of Western New York, Rochester, NY, USA. His personal work can be viewed at: http://joeterritophotography.com/

Seeing Faces

Histological retinal sections from mice that have had NRL and RDS proteins knocked out that appear to depict, respectively, a “happy” and a “monkey/ghost” face (images above). The top image shows photoreceptor outer segments labeled with anti-S-opsin antibody (red) and the bottom image shows photoreceptor inner segments labeled with anti Na+/K+-ATPase antibody (green) and outer segments labelled with anti-S-opsin (red).

Coloboma Close-up

This coloboma covers the macula area, including the optic nerve, and was captured with ultra-widefield imaging.

Subluxed IOL

This image of a subluxed IOL was taken on an anterior segment camera using retroillumination to show the position of the lens prior to surgery.

Seeing CRVO

Ischemic central retinal vein occlusion taken on a wide-field camera during a fluorescein angiogram to document the level of ischemia before treatment.
