Research Description



To investigate the effects of visible light on the retinal development, we established an early-light-exposure model in neonatal mice. The population in the retinal ganglion cells (RGCs), cellular apoptosis and lumican expression were analyzed in the retinae. Early light exposure inflicts a profound effect on the immature retina. Our studies may have implications for premature infant care.
