Abstract : The histopathology of chorioretinal lesions in the rhesus monkey produced by the gallium arsenide laser is discussed. The present studies do confirm previous ophthalmoscopic observation that round lesions are produced by the oval beam of the gallium arsenide laser. Healing of the lesions induced by the gallium arsenide laser is also discussed. Evidence of significant chorioretinal welding, fibrosis, or gliosis was not found. (Author)
