Exudative – Refers to the whitish fluid exuded from abnormal blood vessels. Below you can see pictures taken of the back of the eye. Here is the outer region of the right eye. The exudate is the white fluid.
Here is an example of
right eye exudate between the optic nerve (stretched/pulled as in many FEVR
cases) and the nasal, or nose region. The two pictures were taken 3
years apart and show new exudate which is an indication that FEVR in this eye
is active. In both pictures below and above you can see the red blood
vessels. Below the exudate, running along a line, is clearly coming from
a blood vessel. The white disk is the optic nerve.
