    Spectral-Domain Optical Coherence Tomography and Fundus Autofluorescence Findings in A Case of Laser Pointer-Induced Maculopathy

    Purpose: To describe the spectral-domain optical coherence tomography and fundus autofluorescence findings in a case of laser pointer-induced maculopathy. Methods: Observational case report of a patient with bilateral decreased visual acuity after exposure to a handheld green laser pointer. Results: A 15-year-old boy presented with decreased vision after exposure to a green laser pointer. Fundoscopy revealed gray and yellowish round spots in the foveal area of both eyes. Fundus autofluorescence imaging revealed subtle changes of the normal background macular autofluorescence of the right eye, with hyperautofluorescence dots in the fovea of the left eye. Spectral-domain optical coherence tomography showed a ...
