Abstract
Excimer lasers are now being used in surgical applications in the clinical environment. The laser safety measures developed for excimer laser use in the industrial and research setting may not be sufficient for use in the intense, time-urgent environment of the operating room. It is shown that the only major safety concern relates to handing of the compressed halogen gasses.
