Abstract

We investigated refractive corneal surgical procedures utilizing amplified femtosecond laser pulses from a reliable and compact femtosecond laser system suited for medical applications. Procedures such as corneal flap cutting and laser keratomileusis have been demonstrated in vivo and in vitro. Cutting was found to be well confined and highly precise.
