  QUESTION: The effects of Tetraethyl Lead, 10 May 2006, Kentucky USA

I was wondering if there is any evidence to suggest that tetraethyl lead causes any abnormalities in color vision as a result of interaction with the visual cortex? If the answer is yes, I was wondering if you knew if it would be a loss of blue-yellow like over exposure to toluene or some other color anomaly?
ANSWER: 18 Jul 2006

Dear John,
I am sorry for the very late reply. I did a search for your question on tetraethyl lead and I did not find a specific correlation between tetraethyl lead and the effect on visual cortex. Below are what I found (the quotes in the brackets are the sentences that link tetraethyl lead with vision):

I will also send an email to the world's only manufacturer of tetraethyl lead and inquire about it. Should they send any reply, I'll forward it to you.

Erik Wibowo
