Abstract : The minimum visible lesion in the corneal epithelium resulting from exposure to sq cm laser light is carefully determined. The dose causing 50% probability of damage (ED50) varied with time of exposure. For 1.03 seconds it was 7.52 W/sq cm (95% CL 5.8-5.85 W/sq cm) and for 0.12 seconds it was 10.7 W/sq cm (95% CL 10.4-10.9W/sq cm)
