    Description
    9-year-old with two month history of decreased vision that has improved some over time. 20/20 OD and 20/30 OS. Further prompting, he admitted to playing with "toy lasers" with his friends recently. He also looked at the eclipse, but used protective eye wear. Photos show small RPE defects characterized by a hyperpigmented center with hypopigmented halo.
