retinal burn

retinal lesion produced by intense visible or IR-A radiation exposure

NOTE Generally used to describe a thermal retinal lesion (see "retinal thermal injury"); however, sometimes applied to a photochemical retinal lesion. More specific terms are also used for a photochemical "burn," i.e., a "photic maculopathy" or "blue light photoretinitis" (from blue light induced injuries), or for a retinal thermal injury, a "chorioretinal thermal injury".
