Montage techniques using SD-OCT have been tried in idiopathic macular holes, normal subjects, diabetic retinopathy and Vogt-Koynagi-Harada disease. We present a wide-field montage image from macula to the fundus periphery in a case of polypoidal choroidal vasculopathy (PCV) by using spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) [Figure 1]a. While the SD-OCT features in the macula for PCV are well defined [Figure 1]b and [Figure 1]c, there is a paucity of data concerning the peripheral SD-OCT changes. Merging the SD-OCT the scan length obtained was 26 mm. This enables us to visualize the pathology in relation to other retino-choroidal areas and the optic disc. This helps us study the peripheral changes in a single image. Advantages include no additional costs, large scan length, and more information in a single image. This manual technique is time consuming, automated algorithms, and swept-source imaging with wider scans may overcome this issue.
