Sickle cell retinopathy

Marguerite O. Linz, Adrienne W. Scott

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter details the clinical features of pediatric sickle cell retinopathy that a clinician may observe on dilated examination, optical coherence tomography (OCT), OCT angiography (OCTA), fluoresceine angiography (FA), and fundus photography. Current recommendations for the surveillance, prevention, and treatment of sickle cell retinopathy are given. These recommendations, based on expert consensus and peer-reviewed scientific literature, may help health care providers to meet the needs of their pediatric patients with sickle cell disease. This review is particularly applicable to eye care professionals and hematologists.
