A 38-year-old gentleman underwent ultra-widefield imaging for a suspicious peripheral lesion in the inferotemporal quadrant. The ultra-widefield (UWF) swept-source Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) (Silverstone, Nikon Healthcare Inc, Tokyo, Japan) confirmed the presence of a peripheral retinal cyst [Figure 1]a, [Figure 1]b, [Figure 1]c. This image highlights the ever-increasing role of peripheral retinal imaging in our clinical practice. The OCT findings of peripheral retinal degenerations are still unclear. However, these imaging modalities can aid in not just identifying and treating lesions, which can be missed on clinical examination; however, they can also avoid unnecessary treatment of benign lesions.

(c) Ultra-widefield SSOCT through the lesion shows a retinal cyst in the region captured on the fundus imaging, having a thinner outer wall in the anterior aspect of the cyst|
