Flow-field analyses characterize fluid pulse dynamics

July 15, 2004

San Diego-High speed video photography and 2-dimensional laser visualization have helped researchers better understand the dynamic characteristics of the fluid pulses from the AquaLase liquefaction device (Alcon Laboratories). This information is beneficial for surgeons as they develop and refine their cataract removal technique using this new technology, said Ramon C. Dimalanta, PhD, at the annual meeting of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery.
