Paper Abstract

Laser surgery on the eye and cornea requires a very high degree of spatial accuracy and reproducibility if refractive outcomes are to be reliable. We have identified and analysed the components of accuracy that need to be addressed, and with the results of this analysis designed and built a computer-controlled laser delivery system for anterior chamber ophthalmic surgery. Design parameters, achievable operating parameters and clinical results are shown and demonstrated.
