The following are day care procedures.

  • Green  Laser(532 nm) 
    A laser light beam used to cauterize (seal) leaking abnormal blood vessels. It is also used to seal retinal holes or tears. Diode green  laser is similar to the argon laser, but its different wavelengths allow treatment of some patients with cataracts and hemorrhage that can make argon laser treatment more difficult. The patient is usually quite comfortable during laser procedures, but, if not, the eye can be anesthetized.
  • Intravitreal Injection 
    A method of injecting medication directly into the inside of the eye through a small needle inserted into the vitreous, the jelly-like substance that fills the eye. Lucentis®, Macugen®, and Avastin®, which are drugs used to treat macular degeneration, are given by intravitreal injection, as are drugs for some other retinal disorders. 
  • Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)  
    A laser that uses a low-energy laser to activate a light-sensitive drug that is injected into a vein and travels to abnormal blood vessels in the macula. The light-activated drug then destroys the abnormal vessels
