This image depicted what is known as a fundoscopic view of the retina, or the back of the right eye. Note the optic cup located on the far right, at which point, the optic nerve and artery entered the back of the eye. This was a case of circinate retinopathy, or circinate retinitis, and is due to chronic diabetic retinopathy. This fundoscopic view revealed a ring of lightly-colored exudates surrounding the macular region of the retina. As these hard exudates evolve, they spread into the macula, thereby, compromising the patient’s visual acuity.
