Follow-up Smokestack Sign   
this patient returned today with a recurrence of his pigment epithelial detachment and I took a higher resolution angiogram to make a larger animated .gif.  It fully resolved last time without treatment.  Funny coincidence that this patient returns just a few days after this one.

Seidel test animation   

Here's the color photograph.  I saw him as a second opinion and I sent him back to his surgeon for repair.

Tuesday, September 09, 2008 Update:

A few people have asked about this photo and animation.  For non-ophthalmologists:  this is a photo of a patient with glaucoma with a leaking trabeculectomy bleb.  A bleb is a surgical construct where an ophthalmologist creates a fistula from the anterior chamber of the eye to the space underneath the conjunctiva to lower the eye pressure.  In this case the bleb is leaking onto the surface of the eye. A seidel test is a procedure where a small amount of concentrated fluorescein dye is placed on the suspected leaking site and, if there is a leak, the fluorescein with become dilute and demonstrate the leak.

Smokestack sign animation   

This may be my favorite.  I have much larger ones but the file gets pretty big and slow to download.  These were all created with Easy Gif Animator.
