The purpose of this study was to establish whether exposure to intense lighting favors the development or aggravates experimental oxygen-induced retinopathy in the new-born rat. Five groups of Wistar rats were studied. The control group was maintained for the first 14 days of life under conditions of cyclical (12L∶12D) lighting at 12 Lx in room air. Two other groups were subjected, for the same amount of time, to semi-darkness (2 Lx; 12L∶12D), one with room air and the other with supplemental… Expand
