Low Energy Laser Irradiation Prevents the Early Morphological and Electrophysiological Effects of Optic Nerve Injury
The present study provides evidence that low-energy laser irradiation causes, at least temporary prevention of degeneration of mammalian central nervous system (CNS) axons after moderate compression injury.
