See What You Are Missing. Why the Peripheral Retina Matters! An introduction to Ultra-Widefield.

In this lecture Kirit Patel discussed the importance of looking beyond the posterior pole and why optometrists should examine and document the retinal periphery. Early signs of many ocular pathologies and diseases may first present in the periphery and can go undetected using conventional techniques and equipment. Real case studies of patients with retinal pathology were presented including both symptomatic and asymptomatic patients.
