Figure 4: Images of the left eye of a 21-year-old woman with type 1 diabetes mellitus with proliferative diabetic retinopathy and center-involved diabetic macular edema. Her best corrected visual acuity was 20/40. Because of documented poor adherence to scheduled clinic visits, vitrectomy rather than serial anti-VEGF injection therapy was chosen. (a) New vessels were present on the disc and in the midperiphery of all quadrants with a preretinal hemorrhage superiorly. (b) Fluorescein angiography shows leakage from new vessels and areas of capillary nonperfusion in the midperiphery. (c) Spectral domain-optical coherence tomography shows center-involved intraretinal fluid and subfoveal fluid. The ellipsoid zone is intact (yellow arrow)
