In the last issue of this journal (Medical College of Virginia Quarterly 6: 3, 1970) Thomas W. Nooney, Joseph R. Svoboda, Florencio Ching and I reported two cases of binocular injury and one case of unilateral retinal burn of the fovea caused by watching the recent solar eclipse in the Richmond, Virginia area. Since reporting our local cases, a survey has been completed through other Virginia ophthalmologists of the occurrence of solar retinopathy throughout the state. Nine additional cases of ocular involvement were revealed in the survey and are reported here in table form. The cases are listed in order of probable severity.
