Abstract : The biological effect of infrared radiation on the retina of the eye is discussed. Experimental data are presented on filter systems recommended for eye protective goggles which will reduce the level of high intensity thermal radiation. The filter systems are designed to reduce the infrared radiation in the beam to a negligible level, since this radiation does not perform a useful function insofar as vision is concerned. (Author)
