    Diabetic retinopathy is an increasingly common complication of diabetes mellitus that benefits from early diagnosis and frequent monitoring, especially in pregnancy where there is a greater risk of progression. Fundus fluorescein angiography is currently the gold standard method of investigation for neovascularization. However, this has risks of unpleasant and potentially dangerous side effects, with an added theoretical risk to the fetus in pregnancy. Wide-field optical coherence tomography angiography (PLEX Elite 9000, Carl Zeiss Meditec, Inc. USA and DRI Swept Source OCT Triton, Topcon Medical Systems, Inc.
