What is an iridex laser used for?
IRIDEX products offer the versatility of traditional, MicroPulse, and transscleral laser options for the treatment of both glaucoma and retinal diseases.
What is Pascal laser?
The Pascal (by OptiMedica, Silicon Valley, USA) is a 532 nm frequency-doubled (Nd:YAG) solid-state laser. It can deliver numerous patterns including squares, arcs, full and subset grids, the shapes and sizes of which are adjustable, in addition to single spots.
What is MicroPulse laser?
Micropulse laser is a gentler form of laser treatment. It uses a laser energy wave that has been divided into tiny pulses of laser instead of a longer continuous wave of laser. Previous lasers use a continuous wave of laser energy. The Micropulse uses microsecond pulses of laser that allow tissue cooling.
How does MicroPulse laser work?
What is grid laser?
A laser that scatters light energy across the macula; used to treat eye diseases, e.g., diabetic retinopathy.
What is Navilas laser?
The Navilas® Laser System is an advanced focal/panretinal photocoagulation device revolutionizing the treatment of vision-threatening retinal diseases such as Diabetic Macular Edema, Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy and Retinal Vein Occlusions.
Is MLT better than SLT?
MLT is a novel therapy in the treatment of open-angle glaucoma. Results from our head-to-head comparison between SLT and MLT provide evidence that MLT is similar to SLT in delivering substantial IOP reduction over a 52-week follow-up period, while providing less discomfort both during and after treatment.
What is MLT in ophthalmology?
Laser surgery has become increasingly popular as an intermediate step between drugs and traditional glaucoma surgery. The most common type of laser surgery performed for open-angle glaucoma is called Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty (ALT).
