Abstract

Solar retinopathy is a photochemical retinal injury caused by direct or indirect viewing of the sun and characterized by visual distortion and a small yellow or red foveal lesion. Retinal damage can be identified by optical coherence tomography. This paper reports late optical coherence tomography (OCT) findings in a 10-year-old boy with solar retinopathy after watching a solar eclipse. OCT demonstrates abnormalities in the outer foveal retina in late solar eclipse retinopathy with normal Bruch membrane choriocapillaris complex.
