Vision is based on the sensitivity of the eye to visible rays of the solar spectrum, which allows the recording and transfer of visual information by photoelectric reaction. Any electromagnetic radiation, if sufficiently intense, may cause damages in living tissues. In a changing environment, the aim of this paper is to point out the impact of light radiation on ocular cells, with its phototoxicity potential on eye tissues. In fact, faced with light and oxygen, the eye behaves like an ephemeral aggregate of unstable molecules, like a temporary crystallization threatened with entropia.

This paper will review the newest results and directions for the usage of optical coherence tomography as an imaging tool for brain studies, focusing mostly on a rodent model. Together with state of the art in the field, based on some of the most recent work, this paper will include a brief look on some results obtained by our group. Brain injuries and stroke data obtained by optical coherence tomography analyzing will be presented as a possibility of detection and evaluation for affected tissue, using this imaging system.
