26 April 2007 Mid-infrared laser ablation of intraocular acrylic lenses
Author Affiliations +
Ablation rates measurements with free-running Er:YAG laser (λ=2.94 μm) were performed in hydrophilic acrylic intraocular lenses. We studied the role of water in the laser ablation mechanisms by using hydrophilic lenses with different concentrations of H20 and D20. A mathematical model simulated the experimental results.
