Laser-Induced CataractClinical Observations

Arch Ophthalmol. 1970;83(5):608-612. doi:10.1001/archopht.1970.00990030608016

Ocular exposure to high levels of unfocused, pulsed, ruby laser radiation results in cataract formation when pupillary miosis is induced prior to irradiation. The clinical course and characteristics of these lens opacities, and of the accompanying ophthalmic sequelae, are described.
