A method and system is described that greatly improves the safety and efficacy of ophthalmic laser surgery. The method and system are applicable to precise operations on a target subject to movement during the procedure. The system may comprise the following elements: (1) a user interface, (2) an imaging system, which may include a surgical microscope, (3) an automated tracking system that can follow the movements of an eye, (4) a laser, (5) a diagnostic system, and (6) a fast reliable safety means, for automatically interrupting the laser firing.
1. A laser system for ablating a surface of a cornea of an eye to change a refractive power of the eye, the system comprising:a pulsed laser for making a first light beam of a pulsed ablative laser light energy; an energy detector monitoring the energy of the pulsed beam of the ablative light energy; a slit lamp illuminator illuminating the cornea with a second light beam; a surgical microscope viewing light from the second beam reflected from the cornea; and a processor comprising a memory and a program, the processor controlling of a firing of the lase...
