Microwave power deposition patterns and temperature distributions were measured for rabbit eyes exposed to localized near zone 2450 MHz radiation and good agreement was obtained between the measured and predicted transient temperature fields. The lenses were biomicroscopically examined to determine the minimum exposure times necessary to produce posterior lens opacity (cataracts) and these times are correlated with the temperature calculations to suggest that a threshold temperature level exists.
