Pump Laser Modules Show Promise for Ophthalmologic Treatments

Nov 11, 2022, 02:00 AM by User Not Found

Researchers at the Berlin-based Ferdinand-Braun-Institut (FBH) developed a pump laser module for ophthalmologic treatments. The module offers a cost-effective pump source for laser systems that are used to treat retinal detachments. The miniaturized module can be flexibly adjusted to provide the optimal wavelength for its intended application.

The semiconductor-based, miniaturized laser module could provide a reliable, efficient way to provide laser surgery that is targeted to the condition being treated and could reduce the costs of ophthalmologic laser surgery.

Retinal detachment can lead to visual impairment and blindness, and must be treated promptly. Laser coagulation, a well-established method that uses laser points to...
