          Abstract

          Methods used in laser destructive procedures are detailed. While in noncontact procedures laser energy is delivered via the optics of a slitlamp, often enhanced by contact lenses, the contact method takes advantage of optical fibers for the delivery of energy. Endpieces such as hemispherical or microlens probes enhance the cyclodestructive effect and/or allow the dose of laser energy to be reduced. Laser energy may also be delivered under direct view by endoscopic systems. Advances in laser cyclodestruction are possible by studying the physical effects.
