Mount Sinai researchers are using adaptive optics to analyze retinal eye damage from the August solar eclipse at a cellular level. The hope is that this work gives doctors a better understanding of this rare condition, called solar retinopathy. The findings were published in JAMA Ophthalmology. "We have never seen the cellular damage from an eclipse because this event rarely happens and we haven't had this type of advanced technology to examine solar retinopathy until recently," said lead investigator Avnish Deobhakta, MD, assistant professor of Ophthalmology and vitreoretinal surgery at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.
