Irradiation of the ocular lens of numerous species by near-UV or short-visible wavelengths induces a blue-green fluorescence, which can be a source of intraocular veiling glare. Wavelengths longer than the approximately 365-nm lens absorption peak induce progressively weaker but also progressively more red-shifted fluorescence emission. The more red-shifted emission has a higher luminous efficiency and, in fact, earlier studies in this laboratory have demonstrated that the lens fluorescence in… CONTINUE READING
