Abstract

Femtosecond laser surgery in the volume of corneal tissue is difficult in the case of oedematous or pathological corneas: in those corneas, the propagation of the laser beam is perturbed by the optical scattering. This phenomenon can be greatly reduced by using a better suited laser wavelength. A series of ex vivo surgical experiments has been conducted at wavelengths around 1600 nm. The results have been compared to experiments performed at 800 nm and 1000 nm. We have compared penetration depth and incision quality as a function of wavelength and energy.
