Abstract : The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of ophthalmologically defined threshold and subthreshold macular burns upon the subjective visual acuity of the rhesus monkey (Macaca mulatta). Subjective visual acuity was defined in terms of lever pressing behavior in the presence of Landolt rings. The three different burn treatments used were 100, 80, and 50 percent of the light energy necessary to produce an ophthalmologically defined threshold burn. In addition there was a… CONTINUE READING
