Abstract. Results of the study of removal efficiency of cataract-affected lens of the eye under the action of microsecond pulses of Yb, Er: Glass-laser are presented. The efficiency of lens removal is discussed in relation to the number of laser pulses, their energy, as well as the distance between the end of the optical fiber and the surface of the bioobject.
Keywords: Yb,Er:Glass-laser, microsecond pulses, lens of the eye, removal efficiency, cataract extraction, fiber
