Eclipse retinopathy is a rare clinical entity occurring as a result of unprotected gazing at the solar eclipse. OCT features of eclipse retinopathy vary with time of presentation and degree of damage. The presence of hyperreflective foci (HRF) in acute solar retinopathy has never been described in past. We are reporting a case of eclipse retinopathy presenting very early with asymmetrical involvement of the right eye (RE) more than the left eye (LE). We demonstrated the presence of HRF on early OCT corresponding to the degree of damage and correlating with final visual recovery (LE complete recovery while RE incomplete visual recovery).
