Pagination or Media Count:
Laser induced retinal injuries are operational and medical problem in the battlefield as a result of lasers used in military equipment and the introduction of visually incapacitating laser weapons. It is not possible to prevent all these injuries and there is no treatment. This study was designed to evaluate the neuroprotective effect of dextromethorphan, which is FDA approved and clinically used drug, in our rat model of laser-induced retinal-lesions.
