Paper Abstract

Dutch Belted rabbit corneas and corneal equivalent (CE) tissue were exposed to 0.8 millisecond pulses of 1540 nm laser light. We report the single pulse ED50 for Dutch belted rabbits and for in-vitro corneal equivalent tissues. A histological comparison between the two tissues is presented. Remarkable similarities between the two models in both location and extent of damage are noted. We postulate which cellular energy absorption mechanisms are significant at 1540 nm and how this relates to the histopathology presented.
