The effects of laser photocoagulation in the retinal capillaries.


Using ruby and argon lasers, we produced multiple lesions on normal rhesus monkey retinas. The clinically used energy levels of both lasers produced identical cellular changes in the retina. Neither laser directly produced obliteration of capillaries. However, after the cellular damage in each burn lesion was repaired, we observed delayed degeneration of… (More)
