    55-year-old female presented with left eye BCVA 6/24 N18, early cataract changes on slit lamp, fundus showing ERM with retinal thickening. Multi-color image (MCI) depicting an ERM (green hue) with retinal thickening. Note how beautifully the extent of ERM is captured, which can help the surgeon to decide the area of surgical peeling. The BR particularly provides details of the inner retina and the vitreoretinal interface, hence showing the ERM. This platform utilizes confocal technology and thus has unique advantages over CFP. MCI provides good image quality in hazy media and in small pupil. It does not use bright white light and thus is not discomforting to the patient. Images obtained with MCI have better contrast and sharper borders as compared to CFP. Definitely the new tech in for the next generation!
