Albarracin R, Eells J, Valter K Research School of Biology. Purpose. We tested the hypothesis that near-infrared (NIR) light treatment (photobiomodulation) would attenuate bright light damage in the albino rat retina. Methods. Young adult Sprague-Dawley (SD) albino rats were raised in dim (5lx) cyclic light then exposed to bright (1000lx) continuous light for 24h. Animals… Continue reading
