A thermal model has been normalized to experimental damage threshold data for corneal injury minimum epithelium lesions from infrared lasers. Subsequent damage threshold predictions as a function of exposure duration and absorption coefficient are approximated by general equations and threshold curves. The formulated equations are adapted to indicate the wavelength dependence of infrared laser damage. A revised format for the ANSI Z136.1-1976 laser safety standard is proposed on the basis of these analyses. Author
