A case of panuveitis was imaged using optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) and showed optic disc neovascularization (NV), a known but uncommon complication observed in the course of uveitis of various etiologies.[1],[2],[3],[4]

Manual segmentation on B-Scan OCTA helped us to differentiate NV from other entities.[5] Besides, this imaging technique was very useful to document regression of papillary vessels in the follow-up visits in a noninvasive manner after treatment with intravitreal aflibercept (Eylea®) injections. [Figure 1]
