Conference paper


In ophthalmology laser surgery is a well established method of therapy. It had been one of the first laser applications in medicine which has been introduced into routinly used clinical therapy. Nowadays in ophthalmology a variety of different lasers are used for:
  • photo-coagulation

  • argon laser (blue, green),

  • krypton laser (yellow, red),

  • dye laser (blue, green, yellow, orange, red),

  • CO2-laser

  • photo-disruption

  • Nd:YAG-laser (Q-switched. mode-locked).
