Abstract:

Development of a model was initiated to compare retinal damage caused by chronic exposure to c.w. laser radiation and that caused by conventional illumination. The purpose of the comparison is to establish safety standards for c.w. lasers. The experimental animal used so far has been the rabbit. It was discovered that the rabbit eye is much more resistant to this kind of damage than animals previously tested. Author
