IRIS - A new paradigm in laser refractive correction

Jonathan Ellis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Altering the refractive index of both hydrogel materials and living cornea shows promise for ophthalmic applications. Here we show our recent developments in the use of femtosecond lasers in a mode that induces nonlinear multi-photon absorption and alters the refractive index of transparent materials.
