Abstract
To assess the retinal hazards related to simultaneous exposure from two lasers of separate wavelengths, the retinal effects of 5-second laser irradiation from 532 nm and 647 nm were determined in non-human primates. A total of six eyes were exposed using equal amounts of power to determine the damage levels. The results were combined with those of previous, two-wavelength studies done by our group and compared to damage models developed in our lab. The data were also compared to the calculations resulting from use of the currently accepted method of predicting hazards from simultaneous lasing.
