Chicks blinded with formoguanamine do not develop lid suture myopia.
The involvement of the retina in avian lid suture myopia was investigated by use of formoguanamine (FG), which induces blindness in chicks, characterized by damage to the retinal pigment epithelium… Expand

1. 1. Chick embryos exposed to light via optic fiber during incubation developed faster than those in darkness. 2. 2. At 412 days, embryos under white light weighed 17 per cent more, and oxygen… Expand
Lid suture myopia in chicks.
Domestic chicks reared under continuous light developed light-induced avian glaucoma (LIAG), including eye enlargement and flat cornea. Chicks reared under dim light developed dim light buphthalmos… Expand
Intraocular pressure and aqueous outflow facility in light-induced avian buphthalmos.
Chicks reared under continuous light from hatching develop buphthalmos by 16 weeks of age. This eye enlargement was found to be associated with increased intraocular pressure and impaired aqueous… Expand
Photoreception in the photosexual response of quail. II. Effects of intensity and wavelength.
Eye enlargement in birds induced by dim light.
We here report changes in eye weight and other measurements, in chickens reared in dim light. These effects are distinguished from those seen in light-induced avian glaucoma (brought on by exposure… Expand

The adjustment of sleep-wake patterns and the circadian temperature rhythm was monitored in nine Royal Norwegian Air-force volunteers operating P-3 aircraft during a westward training deployment… Expand
Crew factors in flight operations. Part 3: The operational significance of exposure to short-haul air transport operations
Excessive flightcrew fatigue has potentially serious safety consequences. Laboratory studies have implicated fatigue as a causal factor associated with varying levels of performance deterioration… Expand

Domestic chickens reared under continuous light (24L/0D) develop a series of eye lesions culminating in elevated intraocular pressure and blindness (1-3). This light-induced avian glaucoma is… Expand
