PHOTOCOAGULATION LASER

ARGON LASER is an extremely accurate and reliable laser for controlled and mild retinal photocoagulation where high-intensity rays help to block the pathological neovascularization of the cornea and reduce its development.

It is applied to patients suffering from diabetic retinopathy or macular edema

Due to the heat developed by the laser, the bad cells are burned and destroyed. The photocerating laser is a monochromatic laser with far better results and minimal thermal influence on adjacent tissues of the point to be treated.

Its impressive technical features and advantages are:

  • Its functionality meets even the highest demands,
  • its thermoelectric cooling,
  • the 635nm auxiliary beam,
  • the constantly adjustable pulse length,
  • the spot diameter of 50-1000μm with repetitive pulses,
  • the High quality slit lamp,
  • electronic microprocessor for comfort and safety,
  • visibility and orientation during treatment and diagnosis.

In order to create photocoagulation, the highly efficient LASER IRIDEX delivers high-energy pulses and, while acting thermally on predetermined target tissues, degrades the lesions, leaving the healthy tissues intact.

Laser Iridex can be used for the following:

  • Retinal cracks
  • Macular degeneration
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Obstructive retinal vessel diseases like vein or arterial occlusion
  • Trabecular plastic laser for glaucoma
