Recent scientific papers have drawn attention to potential blue light hazard associated with the use of LED lighting and the validity of exposure limit values of safety norms has been called into question. But can data coming from rat model experiments be extrapolated to human? This article provides some basic recommendations regarding rat retinal irradiance calculations and its potential extrapolation to human.
Key words: blue light / LED / retina / exposure limit values
