Abstract : A summary of studies carried on during the year on (1) Anterior chamber measurements on CO2 corneal irradiation; (2) corneal calcification on CO2 laser irradiation; (3) ocular injury from CO2 laser irradiation; (4) application of thermal models to retinal threshold injury; (5) toxic and explosive hazards associated with lasers; (6) pathology of internal viscera following laser irradiation; (7) a method for detecting and measuring frequency of surface vibrations using a helium neon laser; (8) exploration of potential carcinogenic effects of pulsed laser irradiation; (9) lasers in biology and medicine; and (10) rupture and tensile strength measurements of fresh and treated canine aortic tissue.
