Lasers YAG use photodisruption to destroy the targeted tissue during capsulotomy and peripheral iridotomy cures. The laser SLT stimulates the trabecular tissue to restore the circulation of the aqueous humour, through a laser selective trabeculoplasty surgery.
Ophthalmologists frequently use these applications. They require a comfortable laser presenting a good visualisation through the eyepieces and the slit lamp optical unit. Laser beams have accurate focusing systems ensuring a safe operating. Moreover, to adapt to all types of morphologies, focusing is possible by moving the impact point in front of or behind the focal point.
In order to make the surgery more comfortable, using specially designed contact lenses is possible to target a precise zone of the eye. So, the equipment of laser YAG/SLT also includes capsulotomy, iridotomy and SLT lenses.
Interventions using laser YAG or YAG/SLT are performed during a usual consultation, and do not require hospitalisation.
