Abstract:

Results of experimental investigations to determine threshold levels for doubled neodymium and ruby lasers are presented. The experimental animals were rhesus monkeys. Threshold levels for retinal damage caused by the doubled long-pulsed and Q-switched neodymium laser are reported, and results of experiments to determine retinal damage and lens damage caused by the Q-switched ruby laser are presented. In addition, theoretical considerations and calculations for retinal damage are discussed and compared with experimental results. Author
