[12.9.3.2] Potential for photochemically induced injury to the retina of the eye resulting from radiant exposure at wavelengths principally between 400 nm and 500 nm.

Note: For non-laser sources, it is primarily due to fixating on the source with high radiance in this spectral band. Such injury commonly leads to permanent loss of vision in the region where the source is focused.
