The word laser stands for “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation.” A laser is a concentrated beam of light, created when an electric current passes through a special materialThe name and the color of the laser depend on the type of special material that is used. MicroPulse laser therapy (MLT) is a tissue-sparing solution for the treatment of retinal diseases and glaucoma. With MicroPulse, a continuous-wave laser beam is chopped into a train of tiny, repetitive, low energy pulses separated by a brief rest period which allows the tissue to cool between laser pulses. MicroPulse laser therapy also can be used in conjunction with drug therapy, allowing complete and optimized management of retinal diseases and glaucoma without laser-induced damage.
