Abstract

In this work, the development of a laser scanning system for ophthalmology with micrometric positioning precision is presented. It is a semi-automatic scanning system for retina photocoagulation and laser trabeculoplasty. The equipment is a solid state laser fully integrated to the slit lamp. An optical system is responsible for producing different laser spot sizes on the image plane and a pair of galvanometer mirrors generates the scanning patterns.
