This page is intended for those who are involved in treatments such as:
- Blade-free LASIK
Excimers, modelocked Nd/YAG, Q-switched Nd/YAG and argon laser systems can all be used in ophthalmology. Those complex laser systems operate at specific wavelength, energy or power level, pulse duration and pulse repetition frequency. Laser radiation can be hazardous to laser operators, clinic staff and patients. Your organisation needs to make sure they are used safely.
A laser safety officer (LSO) can be appointed and will carry out the laser hazard analysis as required by the Spanish Royal Decree 486/2010. After the hazard analysis, the LSO will decide on the appropriate procedures to be followed and precautions to be used according to the standards and guidelines relevant to your organisation.
