The probability density distribution which describes the optical fluctuations of multiply scattered waves is shown to often depend on only a single material parameter and to then be independent of the polarization of the incident light. A simple, all-purpose approximation is derived which describes these optical fluctuations. The theory is confirmed by experiment.
