Measurements are reported of foveal sensitivity to five common near-infrared wavelengths and thresholds are given for ten subjects. The eye is found to respond to wavelengths at least as far as 1064 nm. Although a continuous 1064 nm laser source appeared red, a pulsed source appeared green, suggesting the presence in the retina of second harmonic generation.
