Laser eye surgery
This thesis describes an improved system for laser eye surgery. The system incorporates hardware based image matching and MEMS micromirrors for feedback control of laser positioning on the eye. Many benefits are described in this thesis, such as nulling out eye movement, tracking laser firing history, enabling precise control of laser firing locations and preventing firing accidents. The aim of this work is to frame this improved laser surgery concept and prove the principle of various components of the system. A featured accomplishment is the modeling and simulation of a prototype microcontroller using VHDL that may be incorporated as part of the improved system.
