Importance  We report for the first time, to our knowledge, the acquisition of noncontact ultra–wide-field oral fluorescein angiograms in premature infants with retinopathy of prematurity.

Observations  High-resolution oral fluorescein angiograms were successfully obtained in 3 consecutive premature infants with retinopathy of prematurity at the Oxford Eye Hospital, Oxford, England, using the Optos Panoramic 200MA imaging system (Optos PLC).

Conclusions and Relevance  Noncontact ultra–wide-field oral fluorescein angiograms captured using the Optos Panoramic 200MA fluorescein angiographic system provide a safe and alternative method for evaluating the retinal vasculature in premature infants with retinopathy of prematurity.
