7 May 1996 Histopathology of ultrashort-laser-pulse retinal damage
Author Affiliations +
Recent studies of retinal damage due to ultrashort laser pulses have shown interesting behavior. Laser induced retinal damage for ultrashort (i.e. less than 1 ns) laser pulses is produced at lower energies than in the nanosecond to microsecond laser pulse regime and the energy required for hemorrhagic lesions is much greater times greater for the nanosecond regime. We investigated the tissue effects exhibited in histopathology of retinal tissues exposed to ultrashort laser pulses.
