This image depicted what is known as a fundoscopic view of the retina, or the back of the right eye. Note that the retinal vessels appeared to be emanating from the right. Of importance, were the pathologic changes made visible in the retinal tissues displayed as blotchy areas of hemorrhage, sclerotic arterial vessels that had been blanched out, and were now devoid of blood, and regions of the retina displaying a washed-out appearance, all due to what was diagnosed as a case of Grade IV sclerosis, and hypertensive retinopathy.
