Resumen

La retina humana, como tejido transductor de la energía lumínica, está especialmente expuesta a la toxicidad inducida por la exposición a la luz. La maculopatía solar ha sido durante milenios la única forma de maculopatía fótica, muchas veces en relación con la observación de un eclipse. Durante el último siglo los avances tecnológicos han conducido a la aparición de nuevas formas de retinopatía fótica, en relación con la exposición a nuevas formas de luz artificial como los dispositivos de soldar o emisores de láser. En los últimos años la generalización del uso de punteros láser ha hecho que repunte el interés por esta dolencia. El objetivo de esta revisión es ofrecer una visión integrada de los diversos tipos de maculopatía fótica. La revisión se presenta dividida en 2 partes, debido a la extensión del tema tratado. En esta segunda parte se presentan la maculopatía fótica secundaria a explosiones nucleares, a láser, las formas iatrogénicas de maculopatía fótica y la retinitis foveomacular.

Abstract

The human retina, as transducer of light energy, is especially exposed to light toxicity. Solar maculopathy has been the only form of photic maculopathy for millennia, often secondary to the observation of an eclipse. During the last century, technological advances have led to the appearance of new forms of photic maculopathy, related to the exposure to new forms of artificial light, such as welding devices and lasers. In recent years the general use of laser pointers has led to an upturn in interest in this pathology. The aim of this review is to offer an integrated view of the different types of photic maculopathy. Due to the extension of the topic, the review is presented divided into 2 parts. In this second part, atomic bomb maculopathy, laser maculopathy, iatrogenic forms of photic maculopathy, and foveomacular retinitis are presented.
