Purpose: To quantify the size of commotio retinae and investigate its spontaneous resolution over time using ultra-wide field (UWF) color fundus photography.
Methods: We analyzed serial UWF color fundus photographs of 33 eyes of 33 ocular trauma patients with commotio retinae. Total visible retinal areas and the areas of commotio retinae were measured at baseline, 3 days, 1 week, and 4 weeks from the initial traumatic event.
Results: The median time of observation was 10.8 ± 12.1 (4-44) weeks. Spontaneous resolution of commotio retinae was observed in all patients, and no patients experienced any complications during the follow-up period. The mean percentage of commotio retinae at 3 days significantly decreased compared to the baseline (8.51 ± 9.66% versus 12.23 ± 10.39%; p < 0.001), and more decreased at 1 week (1.04 ± 2.75%; p < 0.001), but no significant differences were observed between 1 week and 4 weeks (0.00 ± 0.00%; p = 0.219). The spontaneous resolution percentages during the first 3 days, between 3 days and 1 week, and during the next 4 weeks were 12.97 ± 13.44%/day, 19.62 ± 9.22%/day, and 0.87 ± 1.87%/day, respectively (p = 0.192 and p < 0.001, respectively). The resolution rate was higher during the first 1 week.
Conclusions: We quantified the size of commotio retinae using UWF color fundus photography. Most patients with commotio retinae resolved spontaneously during the first 1 week following trauma, and all cases completely resolved at 1 month without any complications.
