12 February 2009 Limiting mechanism for NIR laser retinal damage
Author Affiliations +
Near-infrared (NIR) laser exposures to the retina are affected by intraocular absorption, chromatic aberration and retinal absorption. We present the latest results of retinal exposure to wavelengths between 1.0 to 1.319 micrometers and show how the trends for long-pulse exposure are dramatically affected by intraocular absorption in the anterior portion of the eye.
