Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Numerous investigations of light induced avian buphthalmia using incandescent light have not defined an etiology. Chickens raised from 2 weeks of age in continuous fluorescent light developed shallow anterior chambers and buphthalmos within the first month of treatment. Chickens raised in continuous fluorescent light developed ocular enlargement similar to that reported in chickens raised in continuous incandescent light. Corneal diameters and axial globe lengths were an inconsistent means of documenting ocular enlargement. Iridocorneal angles were narrowed on scanning electron microscopy.
