Abstract

Two hundred and forty rabbit eyes were exposed to focused ultrasonic radiation at either 3.5 mc. or 7 mc. Circumscribed, chorioretinal lesion and localized destruction of the ciliary: body could, be obtained without evidence of injury to other ocular tissues. The sound beam retrodisplaces detached retinas. These observations suggest possible uses of ultrasound in retinal detachment repair, cyclodiathermy, and destruction of intraocular tumor.
