The OptoYag&SLT M laser system utilizes two treatment modalities considered the gold standard in capsulotomy and treatment of glaucoma.
Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) is an advanced, non-invasive primary or secondary treatment of increased intraocular pressure. It employs short pulses of specific wavelength that selectively target the melanin-containing cells in the trabecular meshwork while preserving the adjacent nonpigmented eye structures. Low-energy laser irradiation evokes cytokines response what consequently activates the macrophages which clear the damaged cells. Increased trabecular meshwork porosity restores balanced aqueous outflow and lowers the intraocular pressure.
YAG LASER ADVANTAGES
Short treatment times
Reduced risk of IOL pitting
Greater patient comfort
SLT LASER ADVANTAGES
Laser light stimulates the body’s own healing response to lower eye pressure
Effective as primary, adjunctive or repeat therapy
Safe, office-based procedure
Reimbursed by most insurance policies
OPTOYAG&SLT IS A COMBINED UNIT WHICH INCLUDES:
Q-switched Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm)
frequency doubled Q-switched Nd:YAG laser (532 nm)
Both lasers are integrated into the e-SlitLight. OptoYag&SLT is a photodisruptor and SLT laser combined into a single piece of equipment. It can be used for Capsulotomy, Iridotomy and Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty treatments.
HIGH POWER LED ILLUMINATION SYSTEM
LED slit lamp offers long hours of bright white light originating from the solid state LED light source. The LED illumination enhances color, detail and contrast and therefore significantly improves imaging. Additionally, it’s few heat emission makes the treatment comfortable even for dry eye patients.
FES™ - Fine Energy Setting
FOR UNMATCHED PRECISION
Advanced technical solutions and sophisticated electronics incorporated into the OptoYag&SLT M allow for a precise adjustment of energy in order to match the specific needs of the therapy or the patient. The fine energy setting buttons are conveniently located just next to the joystick, offering the physician easy and accurate adaptation of energy to the patient’s eye response.
PPS™ - Pulse to Pulse Stability
FOR ADVANCED SAFETY
Optotek has spent extra time and effort to ensure highest reliability and safety of the system. The OptoYAG M incorporates a PPS™ technology for delivering stable output energy far exceeding current. Enhanced accuracy and stability of energy provide the highest degree of safety and assure effective and efficient eye treatments.
Treatment at 3 Hz
FOR HIGHER PERFORMANCE
The OptoYag M with newly designed laser cavity and system configuration features repetition rate at 3 Hz.
Convenient portable design allows ophthalmologists to change location with ease. Having electronics box underneath the table, the system can be moved freely to another worktop and therefore instantly ready for use.
