Paper Abstract

A major problem in using pulsed Neodym-YAG-Laser-Systems for ophthalmic break-down surgery is to supply a sufficient aiming beam which gives the operator a precise indication of the point of interaction, independent of multiple reflections within the anterior segments of the eye. In addition to that, to minimize side-effects, an optical solution to achieve a high cone-angle will be presented. These results will be shown as performed in a recently introduced system.
