Abstract

A summary of the application of an Er:YAG laser system in ophthalmology surgery is given. Mid-infrared radiation generated by an Er:YAG laser system was used for preclinical interaction experiments (in vitro). Differences in results of cornea, lens, and sclera ablation obtained using free running (110-μs long) and Q-switched (450-ns long) pulses are presented. The radiation was delivered to the place of interaction by a sealed cyclic olefin polymer-coated silver hollow glass waveguide.
