    Femtosecond laser-induced macular hole followed by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography

    There are rare reports of accidental macular injury caused by a laser-induced plasma flash.1,2 Here, we report a case of macular hole due to prolonged viewing of a plasma flash by a femtosecond laser that was followed with spectral domain OCT (SD-OCT). A 25-yearlevel while not wearing protective goggles. The pulsed titanium-sapphire femtosecond laser was operating at a repetition rate of 80 MHz, 0.5 mJ pulse energy, a central wavelength of 850 nm, and a pulse duration of 50 fs. The laser beam was focused by a lens with 50 cm focal length before delivery to a ...
