REFERENCES New and abnormal blood vessels in the eye play a pivotal role in the leading causes of blindness, including macular degeneration, retinal vein occlusions, and diabetes. We develop a novel, noninvasive therapy using a combination of short nanosecond laser with ultrasound to very selectively treat blood vessels without damaging surrounding tissue. We investigate this treatment in chicken yolk sac membranes and rabbit eyes and demonstrate its selectivity. The selective treatment of the… CONTINUE READING
