Ancillary Testing
A fluorescein angiogram (FA) of the right eye (30 seconds post fluorescein injection) revealed extensive blockage of choroidal fluorescence by intraretinal heme, leakage correlating with areas of retinal edema, venous engorgement and tortuosity, and extensive non-perfusion involving the macula and mid-periphery (Figure 3).

FA of the left eye (65 seconds post fluorescein injection) revealed blockage of choroidal fluorescence by intraretinal heme, leakage correlating with areas of retinal edema, and areas of non-perfusion inferiorly (Figure 4).
