Patients with prominent vitreous opacities may demonstrate a characteristic shadowing on the volume-scanning protocols using spectral- domain optical coherence tomography. The authors present five cases of this characteristic shadowing artifact. This finding may be useful in objectively documenting the status of vitreous opacification and verifying the patient's complaint of symptomatic floaters, a so-called "floater scotoma.".
