A clinical photo showing a 28-year-old woman who looked at the sun for an extended period while watching a parachute jump. The patient tried to protect her eye by cupping her hands to create a pinhole effect. Three days later, she noted a central graying and fuzziness of the vision of the right eye, which had been stationary since then. An examination showed a slightly elevated lesion in the macula, a definite central scotoma. Her vision decreased and a year later, the vision in the right eye was 20/40, and there was still a small subretinal scar in the macula of the right eye and a tiny scotoma (not shown).
