Do I have Solar Retinopathy?
USA (United States of America)

I had an accidental momentary (1-2 second) gaze at the sun during the eclipse in August. I experienced pain, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, an increase in floaters, and dim vision/reduced night vision. I am concerned about solar retinopathy. I have seen three different opthamologists and a retinal specialist - all have said my eyes are perfectly healthy and show no signs of solar or diabetic retinopathy. OCT has been done 4 times along with fundus photography and there are no visible signs of any damage.
The pain, blurred vision, sensitivity to light and dim vision have not improved. Is it possible to have solar retinopathy and have all these tests come back "normal"? This has become a source of great anxiety and I am extremely concerned about my vision.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
Thanks for your Question
These investigations should show signs of solar retinopathy. Most likely if these are normal, then you don't have solar retinopathy. In case these symptoms persist, further investigations shsould be done to rule out others causes such as visual field and multifocal electroretinography
