Paper Abstract

Energy absorption, heat transfer, thermodenaturation under the action of laser radiation pulse on pigmented spherical granules in heterogeneous laminated biotissues are investigated on the base of mathematical simulation. The possibility of selective interaction between short radiation pulses and pigmented retina biotissues is noted which results in the formation of thermodenaturation microregions inside and near the melanosomes. These denaturation microregions can originate in the eye biotissue under laser radiation intensities less than about 2 - 4 times the threshold ones determined ophthalmoscopically. These microdamages can appear without being detected by the standard ophthalmoscopical methods.
