Abstract
Development of a test of foveal function during and after small spot foveal exposure was the primary objective of this investigation. This objective was accomplished. At retinal damage levels, only a small focal foveal lesion was observed indicating the ability to utilize the fovea during such exposure. Postexposure recovery effects analyzed for target size and contrast conditions suggest retinal and possibly cortical saturation processes.
