Dosimetry for ultraviolet radiation exposure of the eye

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The eye is exposed daily to UVR from skylight and ground reflections when outdoors in sunlight. Additional exposure occurs daily from artificial sources such as fluorescent lamps. Some workers, notably welders, are exposed to industrial sources of UVR. The geometry of exposure critically influences the actual UVR dose to the cornea and lens. When exposed to bright light, squinting reduces UVR exposure. the optical properties of the eye and behavioral responses to bright light both contribute to limiting actual UVR exposure. The actual daily dos of UVR is considerably less than what many previous investigators have assumed. The geometrical, as well as temporal and spectral, aspects of ocular dosimetry will be reviewed in order to allow participants a better insight into the practical impact of many laboratory studies of UVR effects upon ocular tissues.
