The photo Darrin submitted was of a patient who has pigmentary dispersion syndrome. The photo displays some pigment cells in the iris that have come off and the result is a thinning of the peripheral iris. “Using a slit lamp digital system, I was able to shine the light directly into the pupil, and the reflection from the retina (which is the same reflection seen in “red-eye” pictures) shines through the thinning area, giving it a red ring appearance” says Darrin Landry, CRA, OCT-C.
Congratulations, Darrin! Keep up the excellent work!!!
