A 65-year-old man presented with complaints of gradual diminution of vision in left eye for past 2 years. He had a history of uncontrolled Type 2 diabetes mellitus and hypertension. Fundus examination revealed advanced proliferative diabetic retinopathy with tractional retinal detachment involving optic disc and macula. Ultra-widefield fluorescein angiography revealed florid sea-fan shaped neovascularisation with ischemic peripheral retina. (Optos California, Optos, PLC, Scotland, UK) [Figure 1]. Sea-fan neovascularisation is generally present in cases of sickle cell retinopathy and retinal vasculitis.[1],[2]

With advancements in ophthalmology, these cases still emphasise the need of early referral by physicians to ophthalmologists for DR screening.[3]
