But along with the advantages of using lasers for medical applications there are dangers and restrictions as well. Lasers used in the medical field fall under strict safety regulations; Laser powers and laser energies are to be checked on a semi-annual basis according to FDA Regulations. Each medical application requires a laser with certain beam power and beam shape in order for it to function properly and safely.
