The Canada Retina Society (CRS) publishes an interesting and educational Vitreo-Retinal related image every three months – a ‘Snapshot of the Month.’ This quarter’s snapshot was written by Fannie Nadeau and Ananda Kalevar, MD (Department of Ophthalmology, HD Hospital, Sherbrooke University, Quebec). 

Snapshots entitled « Luck of the Draw » tell the story of an 80-year-old female experimented nasal visual field loss in her right eye (OD) with preserved temporal visual field. The patient had a cilioretinal artery; an anatomic variant found in 15 to 30% of the population that often supplies the papillomacular bundle, but that supplies the foveola in only 10% of eyes. 

To see this quarter’s images and read more, please take a look on the Canadian Retina Society website.

If you are interested in submitting a « Snapshot of the Month » for consideration, please see the SOTM Submission process requirements and guidelines.
