In order to elucidate the mechanisms of blue light damage on ocular tissues, the transepithelial transport, electrical characteristics and ultrastructural properties of irradiated isolated bovine retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) were investigated. Blue light (430 nm) irradiation at 20 mW/cm2 significantly reduced the transepithelial potential and short circuit current of RPE. During blue light exposure, a decrease in chloride transport was observed, and this decrease appeared to be closely… Expand
