NIST has completed a series of measurements to determine the damage threshold and lifetime of optical materials under intense ultraviolet (UV) radiation produced by excimer lasers
It can also include the software that controls excimer lasers
The dose measurements are performed using a beam-splitter-based calibration system in which a spatially uniform beam from an argon-fluoride excimer laser
is generated using a special beam homogenizer.
The LAMBDA SX 315C is the first in a new generation of high-energy industrial excimer lasers
The creation of a corneal flap prior to treatment by the excimer laser
was added to laser vision correction in the mid 1990s to provide patient comfort and immediate visual results (the two factors credited with the growth and popularity of LASIK).
McDonald performed the world's first Summit/Autonomous wavefront-based excimer laser
surgeries; these cases were also the first wavefront-based laser surgeries in the U.
Irwin began developing the second-generation excimer laser
for RA Medical about a year after leaving PhotoMedex.
FDA clinical trial for the Technolas(R) 217A Excimer Laser
System for LASIK treatment of hyperopia (or farsightedness), for which he was the lead investigator.
In 1997, Emory Vision participated in the first clinical trials for the LADARVision 4000(R) excimer laser
PhotoMedex is engaged in the development of proprietary excimer laser
and fiber optic systems and techniques directed toward dermatological applications, with FDA approval to market the XTRAC(R) laser system for the treatment of psoriasis, vitiligo, atopic dermatitis and leukoderma.
With this additional approval, the Bausch & Lomb Technolas 217A Excimer Laser
System now offers surgeons an expanded, full-treatment range from myopia (nearsightedness) up to -12.
PhotoMedex's excimer laser
system generating 308-nm UV-B radiation is the first FDA-approved laser treatment for psoriasis, which is the second most common skin disorder in the U.
