Lasers are used extensively in medicine.
In ophthalmology they are used across many fields. In refractive surgery they are used to make cataract surgery safer and to help rid young adults of eyeglasses. In glaucoma we use them to prevent blindness in open and closed glaucoma. In retina disease we use lasers to prevent blindness in diabetic retinopathy, ocular strokes, and repair retinal holes.
