Geometrical assessment of ocular exposure to environmental UV radiation--implications for ophthalmic epidemiology.

Abstract

Epidemiological studies of the influence of environmental ultraviolet radiation (UVR) in the development of cataract, pterygium, droplet keratopathies and age-related macular degeneration have produced inconsistent findings. The lack of consistent results may be due largely to either incomplete or erroneous estimates of outdoor UV exposure dose. Geometrical… (More)
