A Cochrane review on found that laser photocoagulation of new blood vessels in the choroid outside of the fovea using blue-green argon, green argon, red krypton, or near-infrared diode is effective and economical method, but that the benefits are limited for vessels next to or below the : D The MPS concluded that laser photocoagulation with blue-green or green Argon laser of sufficient intensity to produce nearly white lesions in the retina and cover the entire neovascular lesion, as well as adjoining blood, reduces the risk of additional and severe loss of vision, when compared to natural progression of the disease.

Argon laser photocoagulation for neovascular maculopathy: three-year results from randomized clinical trials. Arch Ophthalmol ; Retinal laser photocoagulation is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat leaking blood vessels in the retina that stem from serious retinal conditions such as diabetic retinopathy and macular edema. This procedure can also seal retinal tears. During laser photocoagulation, laser burns are made on the retina to target leaking blood vessels.

Purpose: To determine the efficacy and safety of argon laser photocoagulation of pinguecula by evaluating 1-year outcomes. Methods: Twenty-one eyes of 15 patients treated with argon laser photocoagulation (photocoagulation group) and 23 eyes of 16 patients treated with surgical excision (excision group) were retrospectively reviewed.. Cosmetic outcome was evaluated by patient's self . Nirankari VS, Baer JC. Corneal argon laser photocoagulation for neovascularization in penetrating keratoplasty. Ophthalmology.

Argon laser treatment of ciliary processes has been reported to relieve aqueous misdirection. 50,51 Laser burns are applied to the ciliary processes that are visible through a peripheral iridectomy, with or without the aid of a gonioscopic lens. Typical laser settings include power of.   No treatment has been established although some encouraging effects have been obtained by argon laser photocoagulation (PC) [4, 5], intravitreal or sub-Tenon's capsule injection of triamcinolone acetonide (IVTA or STTA) [], or intravitreal bevacizumab (IVR) or ranibizumab (IVB) injections [] in small case series.

Endolaser photocoagulation the ophthalmic laser microendoscope may be an appropriate procedure, after failure of medical therapy, for the diagnosis and repair of a cyclodialysis cleft, especially in the pediatric population. Ciliary body suturing (Fig. ) may be helpful if the repair of the cyclodialysis cleft with argon laser is not. Photocoagulation therapy is a method of treating detachments (tears) of the retina (the layer of light-sensitive cells at the back of the eye) with an argon laser. The high-intensity beam of light from the laser is converted into heat, which forces protein molecules .
