  • The effects of the Ho:YAG (2.13 micrometers ) laser on rabbit scleral tissue ablation were determined. Over a period of 12 months the status of the drain hole was monitored. A 3 mm incision was made on 26 rabbits through the conjunctiva and the laser probe was advanced and applied under it. A fluence of 255 J/cm2 was used to perforate the sclera with a pulse duration of 300 microsecond(s) ec full width at half maximum. Results of this study show that this laser thermal sclerostomy procedure… CONTINUE READING
