BACKGROUND Photoablation in the infrared (IR) is an option for future refractive and corneal surgery; its basic principles have not yet been investigated systematically. For the first time, the free electron laser allows the dynamic study of photoablation over a wide range of wavelengths with variable combinations of pulselength and energy. The goal of this study is to use the free electron laser as a tool to describe photoablation in the IR quantitatively. We studied the function of wavelength… CONTINUE READING
