Laser Surgery

The word “LASER” is an acronym for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. A laser is a concentrated beam of light with high precision and predictability that allows energy to be absorbed in selected tissues and not damage surrounding tissues.

Thermal LASERS convert light to heat. This type of laser seals blood vessels and destroys abnormal tissues.

Photoablative LASERS cut or sculpt tissue and are used to remove tissue, changing the shape and surface of the eye.

Uses: Treating diabetic retinopathy, and others unusual retinal disorders, including blood vessel problems and tumors, treating glaucoma, open the posterior capsule after cataract surgery , correcting refractive errors.
