Abstract : The total transmittance of light through the whole human eye has been measured at 466, 566, 666, and 800 millimicrons. The forward scattering of light in passing through the eye was also measured. The results obtained on four of five specimens shortly after enucleation showed that the average maximum transmittance was 81.6% at 666 millimicrons. The forward scattered light outside of 1 degree was 35% = 5% for the five specimens at 566 and 666 millimicrons. (Author)
