The picosecond neodymium:yttrium lithium fluoride laser, a high-power, short-pulse laser that uses low energy per pulse and has a high repetition rate and a highly coherent energy source of 1,053 nm, was used to perform sclerectomies by an ab externo approach in human cadaver eyes. We evaluated laser settings with regard to full-thickness scleral perforation and thermal damage to surrounding tissue. We studied energy per pulse, depth per burst (a present number of spots), spot and line… CONTINUE READING
