Ocular hazard from picosecond pulses of Nd: YAG laser radiation.


Seven rhesus monkeys (14 eyes) were exposed to 1064-nanometer radiation in single pulses of 25 to 35 picoseconds fromn a mode-locked Nd: YA G laser. Threshold injury resulted from single pulses with a mnean energy of 13 +/- 3 mnicrojoules. Electron microscopy of the retina revealed that damnage was highly localized in the photoreceptor and pigmented… (More)
