||In the absence of a national standard method for assessing eye irritation hazards, a technique was developed for quantitative determination of the irritant properties of industrial, agricultural and other chemical products on the eyes of rabbits. A 4-ball scale was used for objective assessment with reference eye irritants for degree of damage. The classification of chemical eye irritants includes, in addition to the scale ranking, time and degree of recovery of the eye tissues after a single application of the tested agents in the conjunctival sac. Acids, alkalis, salts, and surface-active substances were studied by this method, as well as antibacterial agents and cosmetics.
