Solar retinopathy (SR) is a clinical condition associated with prolonged exposure to sunlight that may lead to a damage of the outer segment of photoreceptors, histologic changes of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE),and increased choroidal thickness.The combination of photochemical effects and thermal energy on the retina explain the physiopathology of this condition. Traditionally, SR has been attributed to an exposure to solar eclipse, but other causes, like surgical microscope lightning, exposure to arc welding, or sunbathing also have been suggested as potential sources of injury.We provide a new case series showing the clinical usefulness of these technologies in SR.
