Treatment with 670-nm light protects the cone photoreceptors from white light-induced degeneration

Albarracin, Rizalyn; Valter (Valter-Kocsi), Krisztina

Description

The light-induced photoreceptor damage model has been used to characterise pathological mechanisms of retinal degenerative diseases and to test potential therapeutic strategies for these conditions. This model is characterised by two fundamental processes that are common to many retinal degenerative conditions; photoreceptor cell death and loss of retinal function. In the present study, we explored the effects of 670-nm light, on cone structure and function using the light damage model in rat...[Show more]
