Overview
Photocoagulators cauterize blood vessels with heat generated by the laser beam. The laser creates tiny, controlled burns that create adhesive forming scar tissue. The Lumenis line of photocoagulation lasers and delivery devices are designed to give ophthalmologists the breadth and depth they need to treat several types of conditions including:

  • Proliferative diabetic retinopathy
  • Retinopathy of prematurity
  • Retinal tears and detachments
  • Branch retinal vein occlusion
  • Choroidal neovascularization           

                 
Lumenis Ophthalmology - Photocoagulation
How It Works

Photocoagulators are especially well suited for delicate retinal work. In the case of a retinal tear or hole, the scar tissue helps hold the retina in place. Photocoagulation can seal leaking vessels, as in the case of proliferative diabetic retinopathy, or destroy diseased retinal tissue. Photocoagulation lasers can also be used for choroidal neovascularization.
