Abstract:

The spectral transmission of the chorioidal and the pigment epithelium is determined in rabbit and human eyes. The threshold for chorioretinal lesions is determined with a laser. The attenuation of radiation in four model atmospheres is discussed. Formulae and computation methods are developed for the computation of the risk of chorioretinal lesions from atomic fireballs, depending on yield, atmosphere range, and absorption in eye tissues.
