Abstract

The eyes of Rhesus monkeys were exposed to an argon laser operating at 5,145 Å. Retinal exposure sites were examined with ophthalmoscopic and histopathologic techniques. The retinal damage threshold was determined ophthalmoscopically for exposure durations of 12, 70, 125, and 1,000 msec. The utilization of fiat preparations of the pigment epithelium and sensory layers of the retina proved to be a more sensitive method for evaluating threshold retinal damage.
