The introduction of the laser into biology and medicine has stimulated, as it were, greater interest not only in the studies of photo-chemistry but also in studies of the effect of photons on living matter. There are many new applications where the laser is needed in biology and medicine. Now there are selective single wavelengths available, not investigated previously. Tremendous energy and power densities are now possible. There is now, then, a new facet of trauma from light.
