Chorioretinal temperature increases produced by solar observations are computed digitally. The spectral characteristics of solar radiation and the spectral transmittances of the atmosphere, atmospheric water vapor and ocular media are considered. Image spread is employed in all calculations. The calculations are executed for a variety of observation angles, and the effects of pupil diameter, fixed filters and optical instruments are predicted. Temperature increases are also computed for solar eclipse observations by the appropriate superposition of unobscured solar disk solutions.
