This report summarizes our research on the interaction of infrared radiation, especially from CO2 lasers, with the cornea. The report discusses laser systems, endothelial temperature histories, endothelial damage thresholds, stromal damage, wound repair, epithelial damage from single- and multiple-pulse exposures, and a new thermal damage model based on a phased transition. Keywords ExposurePhysiology Laser damage Laser hazards Physiological effects.
