Laser damage thresholds of ex-vivo pig and rabbit corneas at 2.5 and 2.7 μm with 8 nanosecond laser pulse duration
With the rapid development of advanced laser technology, lasers have been widely applied to research, industry, medicine, military, and consumer products, particularly in the infrared (IR) spectral region. Consequently, safety has been a major concern not only for people who develop and operate lasers, but also for people who use products integrated with lasers. To establish specific laser safety standards for eye protection, many laser safety studies have been conducted for determination of the retina damage threshold in the visible spectral region. The damage threshold for the cornea, a major ...
