Transcorneal electrical stimulation shows neuroprotective effects in retinas of light-exposed rats.

Abstract:

PURPOSE: To examine the effects of transcorneal electrical stimulation (TES) on retinal degeneration of light-exposed rats. METHODS: Thirty-three Sprague Dawley albino rats were divided into three groups: STIM (n = 15) received 60 minutes of TES, whereas SHAM (n = 15) received identical sham stimulation 2 hours before exposure to bright light with 16,000 lux; healthy animals (n = 3) served as controls for histology. At baseline and weekly for 3 consecutive weeks, dark- and light-adapted elec...
