Abstract:

Preliminary results of experimental investigations of minimally sized retinal lesions caused by neodymium lasers are presented. The experimental animals were rhesus monkeys. Data for both long-pulse neodymium and Q-switched neodymium lasers are included. Results of experimental investigation for threshold damage by a CW CO2 laser to rabbit corneas are also presented. Data for two exposure times are included. In addition, theoretical calculations based on a one-dimensional heat-flow model are reported, and comparison is made with the experimental results. Author
