Paper Abstract

We present a femtosecond solid-state Yb:KGW laser system capable of performing the complete laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) ophthalmic procedure. The fundamental infrared radiation (IR) is used to create the corneal flap, and subsequently the corneal stromal ablation is performed using the ultraviolet (UV) pulses of the fifth harmonic. The heating of cornea, ablated surface quality, and healing outcomes of the surgeries performed using the femtosecond laser system are investigated by both ex vivo and in vivo experiments and compared to the results of conventional clinical ArF excimer laser application. The results of this research indicate the feasibility of clinical application of femtosecond UV lasers for LASIK procedure.
