Information was obtained on the biologic effects of the argon laser on the retina. In addition, the biological retinal effects of other lasers ruby, gallium arsenide, neodynium and carbon dioxide were carried out. The pigment epithlium was the most sensitive area of the retina exposed to threshold argon and ruby laser energies. The photoreceptor and outer nuclear layers were the next most sensitive retinal areas exposed to argon radiation. The inner layers of the retina seemed to be relatively unaffected by the argon laser at threshold energies, and all layers except the retinal pigment epithelium were relatively unaffected by the ruby laser at threshold energies.
