Abstract:

The objective of our program is to investigate the mechanisms of ultrashort pulse laser retinal injury and to develop and apply new diagnostics for the assessment of retinal injury. During the past contract period, we have focused on the development of a new diagnostic technique called optical coherence tomography OCT for the noninvasive measurement of ocular and retinal structure.
