• Vascularization was induced in rabbit corneas by the application of silver nitrate. Argon laser photocoagulation was applied to the entire length of these corneal vessels with relatively long pulses of energy. Untreated areas of vascularization were used as controls. There was a decrease in the corneal vascularization in the treated areas that exceeded any natural tendency toward remission. The results suggest the efficacy of inducing a remission of corneal vascularization with argon laser photocoagulation.
