The Argon Laser is used to treat lesions in the retina (neovascular membranes in macular degeneration) or to remove diseased portions of the retina that may be affecting the healthy retina (diabetic retinopathy or venous occlusion).
The argon laser produces burns around the lesions that adhere all the layers of the retina and the pigment epithelium, preventing the passage of fluid to the subretinal space and thus preventing retinal detachment.
This ophthalmological equipment whose main component is Argon, is focused on treating related problems such as:
- Diabetic retinopathy
- Holes in the Retina
- ALT â€“ Glaucoma
- Treatment of Macula
