novel approaches to

tissue removal

As various media are used during surgery, the interaction of energy (induced by Laser or ultra-sound) with these media and the intra­ocular tissue must be well understood.

A consortium of six partners with a broad experience in the fields of ophthalmic surgery, optics, engineering, industrial manufacturing and design of medical devices investigates the possibility of removing delicate tissues in and around the eye.

The technology is based on a novel 2.94 μm approach for very efficient use of laser light as a surgical tool.
