Two F40CW fluorescent lamps mounted in an EYS-2404 fixture and 300 nm, 5 nm waveband UV radiation were used to expose pigmented rabbit eyes. The results of the exposures to the eye were evaluated with the biomicroscope, ophthalmoscope, light microscope and electron microscope. The following conclusions were reached: The adverse ocular responses to fluorescent radiation exposure were due to long-duration, broadband radiation. These reactions were more generalized for fluorescent exposures when… CONTINUE READING
