Abstract

See full text

A system and its method for creating a microchannel in the trabecular meshwork of an eye include a laser unit for generating a laser beam, and an imaging unit for creating an image of the trabecular meshwork. The system also includes a computer which defines the microchannel. A comparator that is connected with the computer then controls the laser unit to move the focal point of the laser beam. This focal point movement is accomplished to create the microchannel, while minimizing deviations of the focal point from the defined microchannel.
