Lasers are used in a multitude of conditions for the retina.
Retinal photocoagulation is the mechanism of action. In this phenomenon, light energy is converted to hear at the level of the retina, leading to protein denaturation.
Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy
Diabetic Macular Edema
Central Serous Chorioretinopathy
Mechanism of Action
A direct action on the vessels
Closure and reduced leakage
Scarring + Burns of the layers of the retina
Reduced oxygen demands
Increased oxygenation of the inner retina
Retinal cell activation
Reduction of vascular growth factor + Edema
Types of Lasers
Green (Argon) laser
Sealing the leaky blood vessels
Using a drug (Visudyne) + Red laser. This is used to seal abnormal and leaking retinal vessels.
This type of laser is used to create a opening of the membrane that is frequently formed on the implanted intraocular lens.
