Histologic study of lesions produced by krypton red (647.1 nm) and krypton yellow (568.2 nm) laser lights reported here suggests advantages in alternating these two wavelengths in photocoagulation. Selection of the best wavelength to be used in a given location on the retina should result from pre-determined absorbance conditions in that location. The feasibility of the relative measurement of absorbance in different fundus locations by measurement of the relative reflectance is discussed. Instrumentation for these measurements and for switching from one wavelength to the other is described. Instrumentation for the possible expansion of krypton laser applications to clinical problems in the anterior segment also is suggested.
