Paper Abstract

Since the start of Laser Medicine in the early 60's, there has been an increased interest in its application, throughout the world. Pelt's well4cnown expression when referring to laser: "a solution when looking for a problem" is as if he was revolted during research, as if he set to work feverishly in the search for practical application of characteristic laser effects. Due to laser characteristics, such as the brilliance, parallelism and monochromaticity, extensive practical medical expressions have found their place in therapy and diagnosis, which in the specialties of ophthalmology and neurosurgery, medical laser can be considered an essential instrument of great esteem.
