Abstract
An optical system designed for exposure of rabbit eyes to laser radiation and in-situ retinal damage assessment is presented. The laser radiation is of 2nd harmonic Q-switched Nd:YAG laser at 532 nm. The system is designed for multiple exposures at a regular grid array within a pre-determined region of the retina. Damage assessment is done in real time parallel to the exposure process. We present experimental results that demonstrate the versatility of the system for the determination of the threshold for laser-induced retinal damage in rabbit eye.
