The use of laser energy in medical practice requires specific safety measures. Accidental ocular exposure of laser can have vision-threatening consequences. We report a case of accidental laser exposure in a dentist who was working with a diode laser. The patient presented within 24 hours of exposure and the clinical fundus examination and spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SDOCT) were unremarkable at this time. Blue light autofluorescence (BAF) and multicolor images obtained using the Spectralis SDOCT system revealed the laser impact site. The multicolor image showed a larger extent of retinal involvement highlighting its role in imaging.
