Paper Abstract

Studies on corneal surgery and flap processing on enucleated porcine eyes have been performed using a dedicated femtosecond laser source based on Ytterbium technology. The influence of several laser parameters such as wavelength, energy, repetition rate and numerical aperture has been studied. Best parameters for ocular femtosecond laser surgery are discussed in terms of process efficiency and safety aspects. The 100 KHz laser system is a promising tool for corneal surgery
