    Ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography of a 77-year-old female with severe retinal ischemia secondary to diabetic retinopathy affecting her right eye. Patient has received ten Eylea injections in her right eye. The efficacy of continuing injections in the right eye, based largely on her severe retinal ischemia, was discussed at her appointment. The retina is essentially non-perfused and based on these findings, the physician recommended to discontinue treatment in the right eye. With a systemic workup, it has been determined that her retinal ischemia is due to diabetic small vessel disease. Her vision has remained at hand motion since October of 2019.
