  1. The long-term effects of visible light on the eye.

    Article - En anglais

    The relationship between exposure to sunlight and senile cataract, age-related macular degeneration, pterygium, and climatic droplet keratopathy was examined in 838 watermen who work on the Chesapeake Bay.

    The presence and severity of lenticular, corneal, and macular changes were assessed by either clinical examination or from stereo macular photographs.

    From detailed exposure histories, ocular exposure was estimated for three bands of visible radiation-violet (400 to 450 nm), blue (400 to 500 nm), orall visible (400 to 700 nm)-as well as for UV-A (320 to 340 nm) and UV-B (290 to 320 nm).
