Paper Abstract

We describe an electro-optical apparatus capable of delivering a homogenized, intensity-contoured 193 nm wavelength laser beam to the anterior surface of the cornea. Beam fluence is adequate to produce controlled ablation over areas as large as 7 mm diameter. Preliminary experimental results demonstrating recontouring of the corneal surface as a means of correcting myopia are presented. Means to be used for reducing hyperopia and astigmatism also are described.
