5 Military Clinical Hospital with Polyclinic in Cracow, Poland

Macular edema is a rare complication that can occur under the influence of light. Damage occurs as a result of focusing the light beam on the macula. A 23-year-old patient reported to the hospital due to a sudden reduction in visual acuity of the left eye after visual contact with a geodetic laser at work. After full diagnosis and treatment implementation after 3 weeks, vision improvement was achieved. The case report shows the harmful effects of laser techniques on human vision.

Key words: visual disturbances, geodetic laser, OCT, macular edema
