    Subclinical Photoreceptor Disruption in Response to Severe Head Trauma [Research Letters]

    Commotio retinae is a transient opacification of the retina due to outer retinal disruption occurring in a contrecoup fashion after blunt trauma.1-2 Histological studies in animals and humans after ocular blunt trauma have revealed that disruption occurs at the level of the photoreceptor outer segments and retinal pigment epithelium.2-3 Recent reports using optical coherence tomography (OCT) have shown detectable disruption at the level of the photoreceptor inner segment/outer segment junction and retinal pigment epithelium4-6 and that these changes may be reversible over time with restoration of normal outer retinal architecture.5 However, the resolution of existing OCT ...
