Photic damage occurs due to varied etiologies. In two cases presenting with acute onset symptoms, fundus exam in Case 1 (Welder's arc) showed foveal yellow spot in the left eye. In Case 2 (Solar eclipse), foveal yellow spot was noted bilaterally. Spectral domain Optical coherence tomography revealed disruption of ellipsoid zone and a hyperreflective track extending from outer to inner retina. This hyperreflective track resolved on follow-up and correlated with symptomatic improvement. The hyperreflective track possibly indicates acute photic damage to retina and can serve as a prognostic marker for clinical improvement.
