Case 6-2 continued
Slit-lamp biomicroscopy (D) of the left eye, with a visual acuity of 20/200, also showed scattered dot and blot hemorrhages throughout the posterior pole-
OCT: (E) demonstrated macular thickening and reduced optical reflectivitv consistent with serous fluid accumulation, The retinal thickness measured directly in the fovea was 280 ¡iitl The patient elected to receive focal argon laser photocoagulation treatment in this eye. Four months later, a follow-up OCT (F) scan showed significantly decreased retinal thickening and increased optical reflectivity from within the neurosensory retina. The central fovea 1 thickness had decreased to 140 pni The visual acuity in this eye, however, had not improved.
