Predisposing factors to light-induced photoreceptor cell damage: retinal changes in maturing rats.

Retinal changes occurring during the period of growth and maturation of Long Evans pigmented rats were examined to obtain a better understanding of the basis for the age-dependency of light-induced photoreceptor cell damage. Susceptibility to light damage increased markedly between 30 and 60 days of age and to a lesser extent between 60 and 90 days… CONTINUE READING
