Paper Abstract

The excimer laser while presenting the medical community with a new and potentially exciting tool, particularly in the ophthalmic arena, (an area where laser safety policies have traditionally met with skepticism) also presents unique safety concerns. The object of this presentation is to review those safety concerns and raise user awareness. Some of these safety issues are: Ultra violet exposure, rare gas hazards, x ray exposure, training, high voltage, etc.
