Abstract:

The ERG of the mangabey was found to be altered by a single laser pulse of low energy density 0.2 Jcm2 which irradiated a large retinal area. ERGs recorded 6 or more days post-exposure showed a depression or absence of the third oscillatory potential. The implicit time of the b wave was significantly shorter p . 001 post-exposure. Replication of the study with testing at 6-10 days and 6 months post-exposure revealed statistically significant post-exposure ERG changes persisting up to 6 months. Author
