The aim of this document is twofold:
- to explain the physiology by which the retina converts optical radiation (visual spectrum of light) signals into neural signals for visional and for circadian, neuroendocrine, and neurobehaviorial responses, and
- to discuss the responses of these systems to optical radiation stimuli.
The document is not concerned with the impact of optical radiation on the skin or other tissues, only ocular exposure.
