• We evaluated the in vitro and in vivo effects of an XeCl excimer laser on the eyelid and anterior segments of the eye. The wavelength of this laser was successfully transmitted through a quartz fiberoptic system. The action of the XeCl excimer laser through our system was more photocoagulative than photoablative.
