1. SOLAR RETINOPATHY: Comparison of Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) and Fluorescein Angiography (FA)

    Purpose: To compare optical coherence tomography with fluorescein angiography in 11 patients (21 eyes) with central foveal damage from solar retinopathy. Methods: Retrospective, observational case series of 11 patients with solar retinopathy. Dilated funduscopic examination was performed as well as photographic, fluorescein angiography, optical coherence tomography, and Humphrey visual field assessment. Results: Significant foveal pathology was identified in each of the 21 eyes (11 patients). Visual acuity in affected eyes ranged from 20/25 to 20/200. Optical coherence tomography demonstrated foveal atrophy associated with a characteristic defect at the level of the inner and outer segment junction of the ...
