Difference between laser types

Postby komobu » Fri Dec 07, 2007 4:30 am

I remember seeing a chart somewhere (I thought it was on this site) that showed the difference between all the major lasers in use in the USA. Visx, Bausch and Lomb, Allegretto etc... It showed Beam types, optical zones, etc...

Anyone know were to find that type of info? Because the specs I have seen on the internet are all over the place.

I still finding things on this site myself.
The Faq section of this site has link to this generic table of FDA approved devices:
