OCT Appearances in Acute Solar Retinopathy

OCT Appearances in Acute Solar Retinopathy A patient presented with acute solar retinopathy after gazing directly at the sun. Best-corrected visual acuities were 6/12 and 6/18 in the left and right eyes, respectively. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) demonstrates full-thickness hyperreflective areas (A and B) corresponding to the hypopigmented areas observed on examination (C and D). At 3 months follow-up, the patient's vision had improved to 6/9 in both eyes. The hypopigmented areas on the maculae had faded (E and F), and OCT shows hyporeflectivity in the outer retinal layers (G and H). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Ophthalmology American Medical Association
