Abstract
Subsurface photodisruption is shown to be an effective tool for cutting beneath the surface in human sclera. Using a dehydrating agent to reduce scattering by index matching, photodistruption is possible anywhere in the volume of the sclera. We examine incision in human sclera in vitro using scanning electron microscopy. We found a disorganized material filling the incision and penetrating into the adjacent tissue.
