LightLas SLT: Represents the industry's most innovative, user friendly and price competitive Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty System. Available as an integrated single modality SLT or a dual SLT / YAG Laser System. LightLas Deux Highlights The LightLas DeuxTM is an ophthalmic laser that provides two lasers in the one system: An SLT laser to enable the doctor to treat open-angle glaucoma with Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), and, A Photodisruptor for posterior capsulotomy and iridotomy. This flexibility has been achieved by the packaging of two laser systems in the one instrument. The SLT laser is a frequency-doubled Nd:YAG producing pulsed 532nm light. The photodisruptor laser is an Nd:YAG producing 1064 nm. The appropriate treatment modality is conveniently selected by the physician, whilst the treatment by both lasers is channelled through the same delivery system that can be further used as a quality examination slit lamp. SLT uses short pulses of low energy 532 nm light to target and enrich melanin-rich cells in the trabecular meshwork. The laser pulses affect only the melanin-rich cells, and the surrounding structure of the trabecular meshwork is unaffected. The result is that the body uses microphages to clear the affected cells and to rebuild the meshwork so that it again functions effectively, thus reducing intraocular pressure (IOP).
