Paper Abstract

Proceeding from experiments and experiences of the 2500 operations, the patients suffering from different eye ground diseases were subjected to with the use of the first Russian Ga-As diode laser, it was shown that the problems of its clinical use, related to the developing character of the burn, are easily resolved by avoiding laser directly projected rays that shield the place of coagulation and by applying a mark of light being formed by means of partial shielding of the eye ground surface not being subjected to coagulation. Application of such a mark also eases the painfulness associated with the diode coagulation, mostly caused by hyper coagulation, which happens due to the determination problems arising while attempting to evaluate the degree of the burning under the light of the bright laser monochromatic directly projected ray.
