Paper Abstract

The author gives first a short report about the history of light application as a therapeutic method in medicine and about the xenon- and sunlight-photocoagulators first used. He commemorates Prof. Gerd Meyer-Schwickerath, who was not only the inventor of this new method, but also a leading person in ophthalmology in the post-war years. The first YAG- LASER instrument for ophthalmology in Hungary was set up in 1986 in the Saint Roch Hospital. Up to the end laser year 2762 YAG-LASEr treatments have been performed. The form and the effectiveness of the YAG-LASER treatment will be discussed and evaluated.
