• High-pressure liquid chromatography was used to provide a qualitative biochemical assessment of laser effects on retinal metabolism. The adenosine triphosphate-adenosine diphosphate ratio and the Atkinson energy charge are considerably increased in laser-treated rabbit retinas compared to the contralateral untreated retinas.
