Paper Abstract

The potential of an erbium-YAG laser for corneal surgery has been assessed under a range of operating parameters. The ablation threshold has been measured at approximately 0.6 Jcm-2 and the depth of thermal damage evaluated for different pulse durations and energy densities. The minimum damage of
