Previous Phase I work by the QDI Engineering and the MCW PhotoBioModulation (PBM) teams has demonstrated the feasibility of rapid healing of acute eye injuries caused by military lasers. The WARP I, a proof of concept, prototype, LED healing device, wasconstructed by QDI, during the Phase I activity and will be the model for 10 additional units to be constructed during the Phase II activity. These units will be used in an MCW developed clinical trial protocol to develop a database and to validate the LEDdevice healing technology during the Phase II activity. MCW will further their research efforts to optimize the wavelength or combination of wavelengths, power density and dosimetry for accelerated healing of laser injury to the eye. QDI will compile theclinical trial data with the MCW dosimetry data and develop a device design master file in support of the fabrication of a prototype device that can be mounted in a pilot's face shield or soldier's field goggles. The primary design goal of the Phase IIdevice will be to provide immediate accelerated first aid for eye tissue surviving the initial laser assault.
