An ophthalmic laser surgical method for treating or removing intraocular tissue anterior to the fundus while reducing the likelihood of photocoagulation damage to the fundus. Laser radiation in the infrared wavelength range is directed at the tissue to be treated or removed, the wavelength range being selected so as to minimize transmission of the laser radiation to the fundus by the ocular structures anterior to the retina.
A method of laser surgical treatment of the eye comprising the steps of aiming a source capable of producing laser radiation, a major portion of which has a wavelength of from about 1100 nanometers to about 1350 nanometers or from about 1850 nanometers to about 2050 nanometers, at the intraocular tissue to be treated and thereafter exposing said tissue to said laser radiation for a time sufficient and at an intensity sufficient to induct photocoagulation or membrane disruption of said tissue whereby the surgical method is effected.
