Abstract : The thresholds of retinal injury of rabbit eye is experimentally determined by means of exposing the eye to Q-switch ruby laser light. The results show that the coaglating-bleeding threshold (ED50) of retinal injury is 361 microJ/cm2, the bleeding damage threshold (ED50) is 481 microJ/cm2. The 95% confidence levels are 330 microJ/cm2 to approximately 394 microJ/cm2 to approximately 451 microJ/cm to approximately 514 microJ/cm2, respectively.
