A blue laser system for eye diseases (age related macular degeneration, sub-retinal neo-vascularisation in myopia and presumed ocular histoplasmosis syndrome - POHS) photo-dynamic therapy, based on riboflavin as photosensitive substance, has been developed. A CW diode laser at 445 nm wavelength was coupled through an opto-mechanical system to the viewing path of a bio-microscope. The laser beam power in the irradiated area is adjustable between 1 mW and 40 mW, in a spot of 3-5 mm diameter. The irradiation time can be programmed in the range of 1-19 minutes. Currently, the laser system is under clinic tests.
