  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

Retinal photic injury developed in 2 eyes immedi-ately after slitlamp color photography of the ante-rior ocular segment. Both eyes had undergone cata-ract surgery by phacoemulsification and posterior lens implantation. The patients complained of severe visual disturbance after photography. Oph-thalmoscopy showed numerous white spots resem-bling those after photocoagulation in the fundus. These cases pose two problems: adequate tech-nique of slitlamp photography with flash light and determination of flash power to avoid possible photic injury in the retina.
