PURPOSE To evaluate the effects of ultrashort laser pulses of visible wavelengths on the retinas of rhesus monkey eyes and to perform threshold measurements for minimum visible lesions (MVLs) at pulsewidths from nanoseconds to femtoseconds. METHODS Single laser pulses at visible wavelengths were placed within the macular area of live rhesus monkey eyes at varying pulse energies at five pulsewidths (4 ns, 60 ps, 3 ps, 600 fs, and 90 fs). The number of visible lesions was determined after 1… CONTINUE READING
