Laser photocoagulation of the retina
“Micro-welding” the retina with light in areas of loss of strength and areas with reduced blood flow allows central vision and quality of life to be maintained. After strengthening the retina, it will be necessary to limit physical activity for a few days. Visual work can be returned to the same day.
Eye structures such as the retina, chorioidea, and lens capsule have no pain receptors. They are only blinding (a sensation of light flashes). And with the infrared YAG laser there is no sensation at all. The treatment requires dilation of the pupil.

Modern sutureless cataract surgery makes this operation fast and safe. But in 10 – 15% of those operated on, the capsule remaining from its lens may become hardened over time. This leads to the appearance of fog and decreased visual acuity. Dissection of the cloudy capsule with a laser takes several minutes. No tests are required. The result is felt immediately.
In the early stages changes occurring in the eye may not be visible to the person. And the efficiency of laser treatment during this period is the highest. That is why it is necessary to check eyes with a preventive purpose. High risk group includes people with high myopia, diabetes mellitus for more than five years, hypertensive people and elderly people.
Laser treatment of glaucoma
Glaucoma is a chronic disease. The main method of its treatment is the appointment of drops that reduce eye pressure. In some cases, when drops do not have a sufficient effect, and surgical treatment can still be postponed, laser treatment of glaucoma can significantly reduce intraocular pressure. After treatment, it is still necessary to diligently instill the prescribed drops and regularly check the eye pressure.
