Multimodal retinal imaging is a new concept in the diagnosis and follow-up of retinal disorders. It refers to the importance of combining diagnostic information related to both retinal morphology and function in a unique setting, possibly in a unique multifaceted image, to improve the final diagnostic result. When a multimodal imaging approach is used (as illustrated with a few relevant cases), the combined information are superior to the sum of any individual investigation. Moreover, this approach allows to obtain information which may be quite useful to evaluate the impact of currently used (and future) therapies on both retinal morphology and function.
