Abstract
Laser irradiation at subthreshold energies has various effects on the eye and other body systems. These bioeffects are manifested mostly in the morphology of the retina but also on other ocular tissue. This review will summarize these effects as well as some reports claiming that low energy laser irradiation has a beneficial effect on many eye diseases including keratitis, glaucoma and macular degeneration. The flaws in some of these reports will be delineated and proposal for future research will be made.
