    Toward a New Staging System for Diabetic Retinopathy Using Wide Field Swept-Source Optical Coherence Tomography Angiography

    Purpose of review: For over 50 years, diabetic retinopathy (DR) has been classified by pathologic features seen on clinical examination and conventional retinal photographs. However, newer technology such as optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) now enables rapid acquisition of retinal structural and vascular information in a reliable, non-invasive, high-resolution fashion. Here, we highlight recent studies that have explored wide field swept-source OCTA (WF SS-OCTA) for the diagnosis and management of DR. Recent findings: Multiple studies have demonstrated the utility of WF SS-OCTA for detection of all clinically relevant features of DR. An updated DR staging system is proposed that leverages ...
