Bruce Stuck
SEG Member - PG Laser Pointers, PG Laser Guidelines

Bruce E. Stuck is now retired. He was until 2013 the Director of the Ocular Trauma Research Division at the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research in San Antonio, Texas whose mission is to investigate the ocular effects of non-ionizing radiation and short-duration pressure wave effects.  This research establishes protection strategies (e.g. exposure limits or physical protection products) and develops triage and treatment approaches for ocular injury from non-ionizing radiation and shock wave exposures from blast.  From 1992-2010, he was the Director of the U.S. Army Medical Research Detachment of the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, where he had programmatic responsibilities for the Army Medical Department’s laser and radio frequency radiation biological effects research program. He has 32 years experience in laser hazards research experience and is the author/co-author of numerous papers on ocular and cutaneous effects of laser and radio frequency radiation. His primary interests are in the biological effects of visible and infrared laser radiation on the retina and cornea and the assessment of laser-induced eye injuries and their treatment. He is the Chair of the Biological Effects and Medical Surveillance Technical Subcommittee of the American National Standards Institute’s (ANSI) Z136 Standard for the Safe Use of Lasers. He is a member of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology, the Laser Institute of America, the Biomedical Optical Society of the SPIE and the editorial board of the Journal of Laser Applications. He has served on ICNIRP SC IV since 1999 and on the Commission from 2004 until 2016. Bruce is now supporting the work of the PGs as a SEG member.
