Abstract Details


To evaluate late optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in a patient with solar retinopathy after watching a solar eclipse.


Baghaeepour polyclinic, Saheed Sadoughi hospital, Shaheed Sadoughi university of Medical science, Yazd, Iran, 2011 February-2012 February


A 10 years old boy presented to our clinic on 2011,February, with decreased vision complaint. He stated that he had a look over the solar eclipse about 40 days before, binocularly, without any protective goggles. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA) was 20/70 in both eyes. Dilated fundus examination found reddish dot, surrounded by a pigment halo in the fovea. The patient was followed 1 year.


In recent evaluation BCVAs were 20/25 and 20/30 in right and left eyes respectively. Fundus examination revealed merely diminished foveal light reflex.OCT abnormalities was limited to the outer aspect of the foveal retina. Imaging disclosed a discontinuity within the inner-outer segment junction of photoreceptor reflective band and retinal pigmented epithelium exactly beneath the fovea. No abnormality was seen in other layers of retina


OCT demonstrates abnormalities in the outer foveal retina in late solar eclipse retinopathy that is compatible with fundus examination finding. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
