The image depicts a woman in her mid-40s with poorly controlled insulin-dependent diabetes and bilateral proliferative diabetic retinopathy. Fundus photography of the left eye with corresponding spectral-domain optical coherence tomography captured an omega retinal venous loop en face (Figure, A). This image demonstrates that the venous loop is located in the preretinal plane and is in direct contact with the posterior hyaloid face (Figure, B).
