Abstract

Purpose of Review: This review updates current applications of novel imaging technologies to pediatric vitreoretinal disorders. Recent Findings: Ultra-widefield technology has revolutionized retinal imaging in pediatric patients. Color imaging, fluorescein angiography, autofluorescence, and optical coherence tomograpy (OCT) have all been adapted to capture the anterior segment and the posterior pole in children, and serve as valuable tools in diagnosis, management, and documentation of disease processes over time. The role of intraoperative OCT and 3D heads-up visualization technologies continues to evolve with improvement in intraoperative visualization and surgical outcomes. Summary: New imaging technologies have the ability to improve our understanding and management of pediatric vitreoretinal disorders.
