The light-sensitive layer of retinal cells converts light into electrical signals which are then sent to the brain where they are turned into the images we see. A brilliant network of tiny blood vessels constantly supplies blood to the retina.
Sub-threshold laser refers to the application of sub-visible burns during retinal laser therapy, thereby producing an effect only at the cellular level without causing any visible clinical burns.
Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP) is a disorder of the developing retina among low birth weight, preterm infants potentially leading to blindness in a small but significant number of those infants. ROP is getting noticed due to rapidly improving neonatal care standards, which makes the survival of such premature children a reality.
The retina is the thin layer of tissue that is light-sensitive. This layer lines the inside of the back of the eye. It sends visual messages to the brain via the optic nerve. In some people, the retina detaches; it is pulled or lifted from its normal position. Retinal breaks or tears in small retinal areas can result in retinal detachment.
Retinal vein occlusion (RVO) is a common vascular disorder of the retina and common cause of vision loss. It is also a common cause of blindness from retinal vascular disease,
Hypertension or increased blood pressure is a common yet serious problem affecting millions of people worldwide. Both acute and chronic hypertensive changes occur in the eyes.
Pattern Scan Laser refers to a laser delivery system where multiple laser spots of short pulse duration are delivered in a preset pattern.
LASER photocoagulation is considered the mainstay of treatment in pre-threshold type 1 ROP (Retinopathy of Prematurity).
Yellow Laser is an advanced laser surgery performed for the treatment of a multitude of macular diseases like diabetic Macular Edema
Focal laser is explained as a photocoagulation procedure wherein the laser is applied to vascular abnormalities and or leaking areas in the retina especially in the macular area
