Systems and methods of laser treatment of the intact crystalline lens to increase ionic transport of antioxidants in specific areas where flexural changes and transparency reduction come from lens aging. Microchannels created in patterns and grids placed strategically in the inner lens carry antioxidants from the source—the anterior and the epithelium—into areas scarce or void of transport mechanisms (and thus scarce of antioxidants). A variety of patterns are utilized to facilitate ions traveling along new pathways.
1. A method for improving ionic flow in the crystalline lens of an intact mammalian eye, the method comprising: providing a laser apparatus, the apparatus being capable of acting on a crystalline lens of a mammalian eye;using said laser apparatus, forming a microchannel in said crystalline lens of said mammalian eye by:utilizing said laser apparatus to generate a pulse within said crystalline lens of said mammalian eye, said pulse removing a targeted portion of said mammalian eye; andrepeating said utilizing a plurality of times to generate a series of p...
