Asteroid hyalosis is a degenerative change of the vitreous that consists of yellow-white opacities that reflect light and impede the quality of color fundus photography (CFP).1 Eyes that have retinal disease along with dense asteroid hyalosis usually need spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) or fluorescein angiography (FA) for adequate assessment of the retina.2,3 Although SD-OCT and FA do provide information about anatomy of retinal layers and retinal blood vessels, they do not provide information about the spatial distribution of retinal lesions.
