Abstract:Eclipse retinopathy is a maculopathy that occurs after exposure to intense solar radiation, such as occurs during an eclipse, and is produced by a photochemical mechanism. Although the macular changes and symptoms are usually reversible, residual defects at the level of the EPR and scotoma in visual fields can occur. For these reasons the most appropriate treatment is prevention by means of public awareness campaigns.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
