Wide-field retinal imaging has become an important standard of care imaging modality in many retinal disorders both in adults and children. The recently developed wide-field retinal imaging systems enable approximately 200° imaging of retina. In this chapter, we would like to review the use of wide-field retinal imaging in disorders such as retinal vascular diseases, uveal and retinal inflammatory diseases, intraocular tumors, peripheral retinal pathologies, and retinal disorders in children such as retinopathy of prematurity, familial exudative vitreoretinopathy, and Coats\' disease. Also, we would like to address the rapidly expanding role of peripheral retinal imaging in treating systemic diseases. The use of wide-field imaging technologies in screening, diagnosis, treatment, and documentation of retinal pathologies and the new information provided by wide-field angiography for retinal vascular diseases and macular problems will be discussed.
