    Ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography of a 25-year old male with Proliferative Sickle Cell Retinopathy affecting his right eye. Patient stated that he was born with Sickle disease (SC), and has yearly eye exams. He noted no vision concerns over the last year but has typically experienced sickle attacks about 1-2 per year. The physician noted that the fluorescein obtained showed peripheral nonperfusion affecting the patient's nasal and temporal retina as well as neovascularization affecting his left eye more than his right. He recommended pan retinal photocoagulation in his left eye for his temporal and nasal retina, as as well as his right eye following.
