Paper Abstract

One of the most interesting fields of application of optical fibre technology is the medicine. Among other medical disciplines the field of ophthalmology is very interesting for these applications because of optical character of the organ of vision. After some remarks of a general nature, and concerning the needs of modern ophthalmology, we will review here our trials to apply optical fibre devices for the optical surgery, therapy and diagnosis in the ophthalmology. The devices include: optical fibre illuminators for the applications with operational probes (crioprobes, termal probes, a vitrotom etc.) and some of the diagnostic equipment (like Goldman lens etc.), optical fibre gradient microoptics for delivering of a laser beam to the appropriate internal structures of the eyeglobe, optical fibre lacrimaloscope for the screening of the lacrimal ducts and another one for the orbit. A general conception of the multitask fibre optic microprobe fcr ophthalmological applications - operations and diagnosis/1/ - concludes the work.
