    69-year-old white female found to have a "supero-nasal darkened elevation" in the left eye, during cataract evaluation. Patient was referred to Dr. Hruby, who confirmed that the elevation was a varix of the vortex vein; photos were obtained and thought to be good to put on Retina Image Bank. On the optos camera, the area of elevation was not seen in primary gaze. This is a picture of patient looking immediately up and nasal. Varix not seen.
