Abstract : This report summarizes the developments and accomplishments which occurred during year two of grant No. DAMD17-76-G-9419, Laser Induced Damage in the Eye. The project was to focus upon a detailed study of ultra-structural damage to the photo receptors and a complementary study of the optical properties of these receptors. As a result we have studied retinal damage and repair at both supra-threshold and low-level exposure conditions.
