Er:YAG laser system generating a radiation in a free-running, long-pulse mode regime with an output energy up to 610 mJ and a wavelength in a mid-infrared region (2.94 μm) was used for ophthalmic micro-surgery. As a delivery system a cyclic olefin polymer-coated silver hollow glass waveguide was used. The delivery system was ended either by a focusing optics (CaF2 lens) or by a special sapphire tip, for a non-contact and contact treatment, respectively. The corneal ablation and perforation of a sclera tissue were examined for the energies from 5 mJ up to 280 mJ and from 1 to 10 pulses in the case of non-contact and contact preparation. The threshold energy for the sclera ablation was measured for the non-contact procedure to be 122 mJ (24.3 J/cm2) in the case when 1 pulse was used. For the contact preparation this threshold energy was 270 J (34.4 J/cm2) for 5 pulses used. The iris contact ablation threshold energy was measured to be 10 mJ (1.3 J/cm2) for 1 pulse. The results show the usability of the 2.94 μm radiation in the ophthalmic surgery.
