Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) is an advanced, non-invasive primary or secondary treatment of increased intraocular pressure. It employs short pulses of specific wavelength that selectively target the melanin-containing cells in the trabecular meshwork while preserving the adjacent non-pigmented eye structures. Low-energy laser irradiation evokes cytokines response what consequently activates the macrophages which clear the damaged cells. Increased trabecular meshwork porosity restores balanced aqueous outflow and lowers the intraocular pressure.

OptoYag & SLT M Laser

  • Short treatment times
  • Reduced risk of IOL pitting
  • Greater patient comfort
  • Laser light stimulates the body’s own healing response to lower eye pressure
  • Effective as primary, adjunctive or repeat therapy
  • Safe, office-based procedure
  • Combined unit including: Q-switched Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm) and frequency doubled Q-switched Nd:YAG laser (532 nm)
  • LED light source with a life expectancy of 1,000's of hours offers constant light colour independent of light intensity and lower colour temperature at high contrast
  • Fine energy setting buttons enable the physician to adapt the energy used to the clinical needs for continuous control throughout the treatment
  • Smooth motorised lifting mechanism can be easily accessed by wheelchairs
