Abstract : The biological effects of Q-switched, gated and normal pulse train mode Nd and ruby lasers, and CW argon and He-Ne lasers are discussed, together with the equipment used to produce these effects. Induced sonic transient phenomena, retinal thermal damage threshold values, and visual decrement as a result of optical irradiation are shown. A bibliography of recent publications in related areas is included. (Author)
