How to treat retina today?

subliminal laser therapy treatment application

For a quarter of a century, laser photocoagulation has been considered a safe and effective treatment option for macular pathologies. Over the years, the development and introduction of new and innovative macular laser technologies has confirmed that, alongside intravitreal injections, photocoagulation laser therapy still plays a valuable role in the surgeons’ treatment armamentarium.

Today, ophthalmologists can offer their patients enhanced retinal treatment options, with greater safety and efficacy than ever before.

Subliminal laser therapy:

Unlike conventional thermal laser, Subliminal laser therapy is a non-damaging treatment mode based on a train of microsecond pulses.

It involves a series of repetitive laser pulses with intervals (cooling times) and produces a therapeutic treatment effect without inducing scarring or RPE damage on clinical examination during or after treatment.

Its use is dedicated to the treatment of macular diseases.

There remains an unmet need in the treatment of macular diseases. Increasing evidence demonstrates SubLiminal laser therapy to be safe and effective for macular conditions such as DME and CSC.

Several studies demonstrate that retinal destruction was required to control the neovascularization process in PDR. For peripheral conditions Multispot laser photocoagulation should be favored.

Many countries are unable to afford continuous unending intravitreal injections for macular diseases,” said Dr. Kenneth Fong. Building the case for the use of subthreshold laser (STL) treatment and its application for retinal diseases, Dr. Fong and two other vitreoretinal doctors presented at a symposium on behalf of The Subthreshold Ophthalmic Laser Society (SOLS) at the recently held CAKE & PIE Expo 2.0 in Da Nang, Vietnam.

Subthreshold laser therapy has been utilised in clinical practice for more than three decades, and numerous randomised and real-life studies has proven its efficacy and safety in various retinal diseases. However, despite decades of usage, we still do not have a standard protocol for subthreshold laser applications and settings.

Central Serous Chorioretinopathy: Can it be treated without Visudyne?

Given the difficulty of obtaining verteporfin for chronic CSCR, it is worth considering subthreshold laser therapy as an alternative given its comparable efficacy and practical advantages. We know that the prognosis for this disease depends on the level of disease progression, so a therapeutic option that allows for an undelayed treatment is extremely interesting.

Diabetic macular edema (DME) is the leading cause of irreversible visual loss in the diabetic population. Laser plays a very important role in the treatment of DME despite the use of anti-VEGF agents, said Dr. Victor Chong, consultant ophthalmic surgeon at London Medical, United Kingdom, during a symposium at the recently held APAO 2021 Virtual.
