  • [Self-inflicted laser-induced maculopathy in adolescence]. [Case Reports]
    Ophthalmologe. 2017 Mar; 114(3):259-261.Hohberger B, Bergua A
  • Reports of laser-induced ocular injuries have become more frequent in recent years, especially due to high-energy laser pointers. The article presents for the first time in the German literature a case of self-inflicted laser-induced maculopathy in an adolescent. In addition to the clinical findings, the results of funduscopy and spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) follow-up are…
  • Photoretinitis: an underestimated occupational injury? [Case Reports]
    Occup Med (Lond). 2002 Jun; 52(4):223-5.Magnavita N
  • Non-ionizing radiation, which is produced in large amounts by welding arcs, may induce photophthalmia, keratoconjunctivitis and cataracts. Retinal injuries resulting from exposure to electric welding arcs have been reported, but such injuries are not commonly seen and may be misdiagnosed. A case is described of bilateral maculopathy in a millwright exposed to metal arc inert gas-shielded welding …
  • Evaluation of blue-light hazards from various light sources. [Journal Article]
    Dev Ophthalmol. 2002; 35:104-12.Okuno T, Saito H, Ojima J
  • Visible light of short wavelength (blue light) may cause a photochemical injury to the retina, called photoretinitis or blue-light hazard. In this study, various light sources were evaluated for blue-light hazard. These sources include the sun, the arc associated with arc welding and plasma cutting, molten steel, iron and glass, the interior of furnaces, the arc or envelope of discharge lamps, th…
  • [Retinitis photoelectrica caused by electro-welding]. [Case Reports]
    Klin Monbl Augenheilkd. 1989 Sep; 195(3):187-9.Garcia A, Wiegand W
  • The authors report on a student who developed bilateral photoretinitis as a result of failing to use a welding shield properly while arc-welding. The case is unusual in that no symptoms of photophthalmia occurred at any time. The course of the accident is described and the special features of the case are discussed.
