Lasers

Intro

       Surgery can be bloody.  That’s just how it is.  If your dog, Rover, needed surgery, would you want the surgery to be bloody and messy?  Or, would you want the surgery to be clean with little or no blood?  Dumb question, right?  Well, if you want to know how your animal can have a clean surgery, you better read my report.  You will also learn about the strongest color, all about laser eye surgery, the first laser and more.

What it is

This paragraph is about the strongest laser color. First off, the strongest color of laser is orange.  To see which laser was strongest some people made a diagram showing a green, red and orange laser and they were all shooting at the same spot. Then the green stopped because the orange and red mixed together and it was too powerful and the red stopped because the green was too strong.  Therefore the orange was the only one that was still shooting meaning it was the strongest.

 

This paragraph is about Laser eye surgery. Dr. Jose Barraquer first invented Laser Eye Surgery in the year 1990. He developed a device that would cut thin flaps in the cornea and alter its shape.  He called it the ‘Microkeratome.’  He invented it in 1990 in Colombia. The procedure was called keratomileusis.

 

   

History

      

This paragraph is about the gas laser. Ali Javan an Iranian physicist in MIT invented The Gas Laser (which is being widely used in medical systems & industry).  The first gas laser was called the helium-neon laser. The gas laser is a laser that an electric current is discharged through gas to make light

Animal laser surgery is less painful, less bloody, less swelling and it’s a quick recovery. Lasers are also used for spays and neuters, and or declawing and removal of many tumors.  It saves time and money as well.
