Paper Abstract

We report on ablation and recontouring of the anterior surface of human and animal corneas using an excimer laser beam delivery system. Experimental data on ablation rates, resultant surface smoothness, epithelium regrowth over ablated surfaces and clinical appearance of ablated corneas with time will be shown. Also discussed are some effects of UV beam quality on these topics.
