Medical terminology for light-induced blindness?

Hi all - long-time lurker (very useful resource, this!), first-time poster. :)

i'm writing a story where a character is at risk of going blind from staring into a very bright, very strong light source. I'm trying to work out the correct medical name for that particular kind of blindness. Nothing too technical - something a widely-educated scientist would know, rather than a term specific to opthalmology.

Thanks in advance!
