Theoretical Modeling of Ocular Tissue Damage by Short Pulse Lasers.
Final rept.. 15 Apr 93-14 Sep 96,
TEXAS UNIV MEDICAL SCHOOL AT HOUSTON
Pagination or Media Count:
This work has developed computer simulations of how ultra-short pulsed lasers will interact with the retina. Consideration was given to how optical energy couples into the melanosomes of the retinal pigmented epithelium RPE, how thermal energy is confined within the melanosomes, how stress is generated in the melanosomes, and the pulse-duration dependence of thermal and stress induced injury to the melanosome.
