Retinal phototoxicity and the evaluation of the blue light hazard of a new solid-state lighting technology
TLDR
It is shown that GaN-on-GaN diodes are more toxic than conventional LED for the rat neural retina and the rat retinal pigment epithelium, suggesting that the values used for regulations, calculated in primates using the same methods than in rats, should be revised.

TLDR
It is indicated that retinal injury in the mice induced by white LED light occurred in a CCT-dependent manner, and that light with a higher CCT was more likely to reduce ONL nuclei; however, the apoptosis pathway may not be the only mechanism involved.
Retinal Protection from LED-Backlit Screen Lights by Short Wavelength Absorption Filters
(1) Background: Ocular exposure to intense light or long-time exposure to low-intensity short-wavelength lights may cause eye injury. Excessive levels of blue light induce photochemical damage to the
Effects of white light‐emitting diode (LED) exposure on retinal pigment epithelium in vivo
TLDR
It is concluded that white LEDs induced strong damages in rat RPE characterized by the breakdown of the BRB and the induction of necrotic cell death, which led to the disruption of the outer blood–retinal barrier.

TLDR
Application of high-power LED light with short duration as used for self-defense was found to cause temporary phototoxicity, but safety was confirmed as vision recovered within 24 h.
Animal Models of LED-Induced Phototoxicity. Short- and Long-Term In Vivo and Ex Vivo Retinal Alterations
TLDR
Ex vivo studies showed a progressive reduction of cones and an involvement of retinal pigment epithelium cells in the area of the lesion and, in parallel, an activation of microglial cells that perfectly circumscribe the damage in the outer retinal layer.
Short- and Long-Term Study of the Impact of Focal Blue Light-Emitting Diode-Induced Phototoxicity in Adult Albino Rats
TLDR
LIP caused a progressive reduction of the outer retina with loss of S cones and a parallel dynamic activation of microglial cells in the lesioned area.
Comparison of ophthalmic toxicity of light-emitting diode and organic light-emitting diode light sources
TLDR
In corneal and conjunctival epithelial cells, the levels of reactive oxygen species production and interleukin-8 expression after white light-emitting diodes (LED) exposure were significantly greater than those after OLED exposure.
Structural and Functional Change in Albino Rat Retina Induced by Various Visible Light Wavelengths
TLDR
The results indicate that the retinal damage induced by visible light observed in albino rats depends on the wavelength and energy level of the exposed light.

White Light–Emitting Diodes (LEDs) at Domestic Lighting Levels and Retinal Injury in a Rat Model
TLDR
The results raise questions about adverse effects on the retina from chronic exposure to LED light compared with other light sources that have less blue light, and suggest a precautionary approach with regard to the use of blue-rich “white” LEDs for general lighting.
Retinal damage induced by commercial light emitting diodes (LEDs).
TLDR
The role of blue light from LEDs in retinal damage was elucidated and LED light caused a state of suffering of the retina with oxidative damage and retinal injury.
The Influence of Low-powered Family LED Lighting on Eyes in Mice Experimental Model
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of illumination source from the low-powered and the conscious spectrum source of LED family lamps on retina tissues showed that the photoreceptor layer is significantly reduced in thickness after 4 weeks of LED exposure 2h every day or LED illuminated environment.
Local fundus response to blue (LED and laser) and infrared (LED and laser) sources.
TLDR
Nonparametric statistical analysis of the scores from the two samples support the conclusion that there is no difference in the consequences of LED and laser light exposures under these matched conditions.
Eye damage control by reduced blue illumination.
TLDR
Results strongly support the conclusion that the blue filter attenuation reduces the frequency of damage by exposure, and this experimental system is a useful model for normal human eye aging and continuous spectrum environment irradiance.
A Novel In Vivo Model of Focal Light Emitting Diode-Induced Cone-Photoreceptor Phototoxicity: Neuroprotection Afforded by Brimonidine, BDNF, PEDF or bFGF
TLDR
It is concluded that LIP results in rod and cone-Photoreceptor loss, and is a reliable, quantifiable model to study cone-photoreceptor degeneration.

Functional and morphologic consequences of light exposure in primate eyes.
TLDR
Evaluated the morphologic and functional changes of the primate retina after light exposure using spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) and electroretinography (ERG), which caused increased reflectivity of the photoreceptor OS which corresponded to intracellular vacuolization and irregularity of the lamellar structure of the OS.

TLDR
A comprehensive analysis of the potential risks of white LEDs is given, taking into account pre-clinical knowledge as well as epidemiologic studies and reports the French Agency's recommendations to avoid potential retinal hazards.
