ELLEX TANGO SLT & YAG LASER

ellex tangoSLT (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty) is an easy to use, fast and painless technology which provides excellent results.

It is mainly used during surgery for glaucoma and secondary cataracts.

More specifically it is used for:

  • Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT laser) in patients with glaucoma. The Ellex Tango SLT laser produces short, low energy pulses to improve the capacity of the aqueous humor and reduce intraocular pressure.
  • Laser Iridotomy where a small slit is created in the iris to help drain the aqueous humor of the eye which then helps to prevent glaucoma.
  • With the application of YAG Laser, secondary cataract is also treated. The posterior border where the intraocular was placed during the first cataract surgery, in a large proportion of patients, blurred cells can be produced, and vision blurs again. In the secondary cataract surgery, the yag laser creates a hole in the center of the perineum blur, and the Ellex Tango performs the cleavage process of the cavity.

With this technology improvement can be immediate and patients return to their daily activities in no time at all.
