Retinal Laser Photocoagulation

A retinal laser photocoagulation is a procedure which uses a laser with wavelengths matching the absorption spectrum of the retinal pigment epithelium to coagulate the cell layers, causing scarring between the choroid and retinal layers. The retinal laser procedure at the Japan Eye Center is carried out by Laser 532.

THIS PROCEDURE IS INDICATED FOR:

  • Photocoagulation of degenerated retina due to complications of diabetes.

  • Photocoagulation of retinal tear, limiting the risk of retinal detachment and retinal hemorrhage.

  • Limiting vascular endothelial growth factor.

 Prognosis
after Retinopathy treatment

Due to the complexity of the natural disposition of each person and the disease severity, the surgery outcome and postoperative vision cannot be fully prognoses. Therefore, it is not possible to guarantee the postoperative results with certainty. The post-operative vision can be improved, but very little, or cannot.

Post operation EFFECTS

RETINAL LASER PHOTOCOAGULATION Do’s and Don’ts

  • You should avoid water into your eye on the day of laser photocoagulation.

  • Apply medications as prescribed by your doctor

  • In the case of peripheral laser photocoagulation due to peripheral retinal degeneration: Work and study as normal, exercise is allowed. However, it is necessary to limit carrying too heavy items or practicing intense sports because this might lead to a high risk of eye crash.

  • In the case of laser photocoagulation of retinal tear: In the first one or two weeks, you should do gentle activities, avoid vigorous movement, carry heavy loads and play high-risk sports.

  • The photocoagulated retinal area will not be able to perceive the light and may, after the photocoagulation, have dark gaps (loss of visual field) at the photocoagulated area.

  • Cloudy vitreous humor, flash conditions which exist before the procedure remains after that.

  • Due to use of contact glasses during the laser, corneal abrasion in some cases can occur. If any, you will get a prescription from the doctor.

  • In some cases, you may feel a little pain which may last a few hours.

  • Due to the impact of laser light intensity, after the procedure, your visual images can be different in color (such as looking through a red prism). This condition may last 2-3 hours.
