Laser Treatment

The Bellevue ophthalmology clinics are equipped with several laser technologies for the treatment of eye diseases. Below you will find all the procedures performed at the Bellevue ophthalmology clinic as part of laser treatment.

Discover the Different Laser Treatment Methods

Laser Capsulotomy

Laser capsulotomy can treat opacification of the posterior capsule, which can occur a few years or months after a cataract surgery.

Capsular opacification results from an accumulation of debris on the posterior capsule (part of the lens still present after the cataract surgery). This accumulation usually causes a decline in vision.

During capsulotomy, the surgeon creates an opening in the capsule to remove the debris and allow you to regain better vision.

Laser Photocoagulation

Laser photocoagulation is a medical procedure used to treat various eye conditions, including diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), retinal detachment, and glaucoma.

The process involves using a laser beam to apply controlled heat to specific tissues of the eye. This laser beam creates tiny, localized lesions in the target tissues, which helps seal leaking blood vessels or selectively destroy abnormal cells.

SLT Laser

The SLT laser, or its full name, "Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty," is one of the possible treatments to reduce intraocular pressure. This laser treatment lasts only a few minutes, is painless, and is performed under local anesthesia (eye drops). It involves stimulating the trabecular meshwork of the eye using a light beam to allow the aqueous humor to circulate more easily. By doing so, it helps lower intraocular pressure.

Iridotomy Laser

The YAG laser, also known as iridotomy in its full name, is a preventive treatment recommended for individuals with narrow iridocorneal angles.

When left untreated, narrow iridocorneal angles can lead to an acute glaucoma attack.

Laser iridotomy involves creating a microscopic hole in the iris, which subsequently allows the aqueous humor to flow freely through this newly created passage.
