Intraocular laser surgical probe for membrane disruption by laser-induced breakdown

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

A fiber probe has been designed as a surgical aid to cut intraocular membranes with laser-induced breakdown as the mechanism. The design of the intraocular laser surgical probe is discussed. A preliminary retinal damage distance has been calculated with breakdown threshold, spot size, and shielding measurements. Collateral mechanical-damage effects caused by shock wave and cavitation are discussed.
