In order to investigate the effects of 193-nm excimer laser radiation on corneal wound healing five bovine corneas were treated with subablative and ablative 193-nm excimer laser radiation, by simple light exposure and mechanical ablation of the corneal tissue or not treated. The corneas were metabolically labelled with a [35S]-labeling reagent. The proteoglycans were then extracted and radioactivity was measured with a liquid scintillation spectrometer. Corneas after ablative 193-nm excimer laser radiation and after mechanical ablation had less radioactivity incorporated but had also less corneal tissue.
