A 43-year-old myopic male presented with sudden onset diminution of vision in the right eye. Fundus evaluation revealed posterior polar retinal detachment. A color fundus photograph of the right eye revealed fluid in the posterior pole with a subretinal band, no break was discernable [Figure 1]a. Structural optical coherence tomography (OCT) confirmed the fluid but failed to detect any break [Figure 1]c. Multicolor (MC) imaging showed the area of detachment as a greenish hue and was able to pick up multiple sieve-like breaks (yellow arrows) and a single large break (white arrow). The red arrow denotes an artifact [Figure 1]b. The breaks were much accentuated in the infrared reflectance imaging [Figure 1]d. MC imaging can detect slit breaks and help in surgical decision-making in posterior polar retinal detachments. Multicolor imaging (MCI) is a novel retinal imaging modality.[1] The use of MCI has been described in various disorders.[2]
