This patient is a 32-year-old female with poorly controlled type I diabetes mellitus and severe proliferative diabetic retinopathy. She had not had panretinal photocoagulation at the time of presentation. Eventually this patient developed severe vitreous hemorrhage and traction retinal detachments in both eyes. Optos® widefield fluorescein angiography demonstrates delayed arteriovenous transit time, extensive neovascularization of the disc and huge areas of capillary nonperfusion.
