Higher resolution images and complex beam shapes

Beam steering components have been a crucial part of the ophthalmology market for many years. This area continues to grow and combinations of scanning laser ophthalmology with computer processing advances retinal fluorescence and disease diagnosis technology. Techniques such as this are moving from argon-ion lasers to continuous wave lasers with scanning heads to develop areas like early diagnosis of glaucoma, macular degeneration, and other eyesight stealing diseases. Using adaptive-optics and controllable actuators enables higher resolution images and complex beam shapes.
