Abstract

The contribution of the retina to entoptic scatter can be discerned from other components by the use of polarized light. Measurements of the modulation of the luminous veil round a polarized glare source gave information about the retinal share in it. Depending on the experimental circumstances, values between 12% and 40% were found. The interpretation of the divergence between these percentages is discussed in terms of variations in thickness of the retina and the directional sensitivity of the cone receptors.
