Paper Abstract

The effect of repeated low power He-Ne laser on rabbit's corneal epithelium was studied after 3 daily sessions. Under certain irradiation parameters, low power He-Ne laser irradiation was found to change the mitotic rate in the basal layer of intact corneal epithelium. Three daily irradiations for 3 or 10 minutes increased the mitotic index while 30 minutes irradiations decreased it.
