Abstract
Transscleral laser (YAG:Nd, (lambda) equals 1.06 micrometers ) for ophthalmology has been developed and assembled for pulse laser transscleral treatment of eyes structures by means of adaptive optical fibers tip. `Adaptivity' means that we have used some exactly defined levels of optical fiber tip contact pressure to eyes surface to replace intertissues liquid. Such kind of fiber tip permit us apply more laser irradiation power due to decreasing of laser beam absorption in the liquid of eyes tissue. The different laser power levels, pulse duration, exposure time have been considered in correspondence with many types of adaptive fiber optical tips to optimize both transscleral coagulation and cutting process. To exactly determine the dependencies of laser irradiation spatial distributions behind sclera via contact tips pressure levels we have used as a adequate enough model He-Ne laser and eyes tissue samples. Laser system consist of power supply, control unit, laser head with cooling system, adapter for different kind of optical fibers tips. All of the above has been mounted as one case.
