Laser sclerostomy ab externo using mid infrared lasers.


An ab externo fistulizing procedure (sclerostomy) was performed in vivo in 48 rabbit eyes using a pulsed (20 microseconds and 200 microseconds) Holmium:YAG (Ho:YAG) laser (2120 nm) and a pulsed (200 microseconds) Erbium:YAG (Er:YAG) laser (2940 nm). The laser energy was delivered via an infrared transmitting fiber in contact with the sclera, with the fiber… (More)
