Abstract:

Permanent functional alterations in visual acuity were observed with laser exposures HeNe, Krypton and Argon at corneal irradiance levels below those previously reported using fundoscopic or fine histological criteria. The effects of low-level irradiation appeared selective depending upon the wavelength of the exposing source and appeared to be cumulative over time. Monochromatic as opposed to achromatic targets appeared more sensitive measures of minimal functional disruptions.
