The sp-mode[TM] is the latest advancement in LightMed laser photocoagulators, offering an innovative approach to achieving positive clinical outcomes and eliminating laser-induced thermal tissue damage or treatment side effects.
Techniques of treatment have also evolved considerably over time; for example early photocoagulators produced intense burns with significant damage to the nerve fibre layer, with corresponding visual field defects (Figures 1a and b), but over time gentler laser application, including technologies such as micropulse diode to limit collateral tissue damage, have lessened treatment side effects.
