Abstract

IF a tube containing radium bromide is wrapped in black paper and brought within three or four inches of the eye, in a dark room, a curious sensation of general illumination of the eye is experienced; this occurs whether the eyelid is closed or not. It is difficult accurately to describe the sensation produced; the eye seems filled with light. This effect can readily be detected when six florins are placed between the closed eye and the sample of radium.
