Ask an Eye M.D. Answer Archive
My left eye lens has been burned by viewing the solar eclipse. I cannot see properly through this eye now. Is there a treatment for this?
There is, unfortunately, no treatment for solar retinopathy. May I also suggest that you write letters to your local press, etc., each time an eclipse approaches to let people know that this is a real problem which CAN happen to them.
