"Photonics Applications in Ophthalmology: From Laser Surgery to Diagnostic Techniques"
Photonics applications have revolutionized ophthalmology, offering precise tools for both diagnosis and treatment. Laser surgery, such as LASIK and photocoagulation, utilizes focused light beams to reshape the cornea or seal off abnormal blood vessels in conditions like diabetic retinopathy. Diagnostic techniques like optical coherence tomography (OCT) employ photonics to provide high-resolution, cross-sectional imaging of ocular tissues, aiding in the early detection and monitoring of diseases like glaucoma and macular degeneration. These photonics-based approaches not only enhance clinical precision but also improve patient outcomes by offering less invasive and more accurate interventions in the realm of eye care.
