Abstract
The recent development of ultrafast laser systems in the visible and near infrared spectral regions requires detailed knowledge of the material properties of ocular media. Different physical mechanisms play competing roles and give rise to new phenomena as the femtosecond laser pulse propagates in ocular media. We investigate the relative importance of radial diffraction and material dispersion for a wide range of wavelengths for femtosecond laser pulse propagation. Because no analytical solution exists which can fully explain the laser- material interaction, we use numerical techniques. The numerical technique will be described in detail.
