Argon Laser Treatment
There are many different lasers used in ophthalmology. The argon laser is a special, green-wavelength laser that is often used for retinal therapy. The laser induces heat energy in the retina and can be precisely focused and adjusted from simply stimulating the retina to reduce swelling, to creating small scars in the retina to cauterize blood vessels or prevent a retinal tear from extending and/or leading to a retinal detachment. The laser procedure is painless and performed in our state-of-the-art laser facility in our surgery center.
