Photoablation of ocular tissues can be performed with free running Er:lasers, but their application leads to significantly more thermal tissue damage than photoablation with ArF excimer lasers. This means a serious drawback to clinical investigations on treatments with Er:lasers. However, an essential reduction of the thermal damage zone is achieved by photoablation with a Q-switched Er:YAG laser (TEMoo, tp equals 100 nsec). Detailed results of our work on bovine cornea are presented.
