1. In Vivo Application and Imaging of Intralenticular Femtosecond Laser Pulses for the Restoration of Accommodation

    PURPOSE According to the Helmholtz theory of accommodation, one major cause of the development of presbyopia is the increasing sclerosis of the crystalline lens. One concept for regaining the elasticity of the sclerosing lens is intralenticular treatment by femtosecond laser pulses. METHODS The feasibility of applying and imaging in vivo microincisions by femtosecond laser pulses was evaluated in five rabbit lenses with a new high repetition rate (100 kHz) femtosecond laser unit. The treated eyes were monitored using optical coherence tomography (OCT) and Scheimpflug imaging for localizing and studying the tissue effects of the incisions. The rabbits were investigated preoperatively ...
