Solar UVB radiation evokes photokeratitis, accompanied by increased corneal hydration and changes in corneal transparency, resulting in increased light absorption. Corneal optical properties are disturbed and visual acuity decreased. The aim of this study was to investigate the reversibility of these UVB-induced changes. Rabbit corneas were irradiated with… CONTINUE READING
