The purpose of this study was to measure trigeminal sensitivity of the eyes to irritative exposures and to examine the influence of individual characteristics, e.g., gender, age, and smoking, on this sensitivity. During an experimental study, 158 of 2,025 randomly selected volunteers were examined for sensory irritation threshold in the eyes to carbon dioxide (CO2). Eyes were exposed to progressive concentrations of CO2 (10, 20, 40, 80, and 160 ml/l), until the subject claimed a distinct… CONTINUE READING
