Abstract

Abstract: : Purpose: To report the Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope/Ocular Coherence Tomographic (SLO/OCT)appearance of the solar retinopathy and to relate the findings to the histopathology of the disease. Methods: Four eyes of two patients with a history and clinical findings consistent with solar retinopathy are presented with the relative imaging. SLO/OCT (UK, Canterbury; OTI Toronto) is a scanning laser ophthalmoscope/OCT combined which is capable of acquiring high resolution imaging of the thickness ot the retina and RPE layer. Results: Imaging through the foveal center shows a normal inner retina with a remarkable derangement or the inner part of the double-layered hyperreflective structure which is considered sub-retinal. The outer part of the hyperreflective structure is normal. The area imaged corresponds to the central yellow spot noted upon examination in the four eyes. The histopathology of the disease, as previsously described, shows the damage to be limited to the outer segment of photoreceptors with minimal involvment of the overlying retina and underlying RPE. Conclusions: SLO/OCT produces enhanced resolution imaging for solar retinopathy. The inner layer of the hyperreflective double line, which is considered to be subretinal, may consists of the outer photoreceptor segment with the outer layer being the RPE.
