Nidek has launched LPM, Low Power Mode for the MC-500 Vixi laser photocoagulator.

“LPM is a new feature that allows better management of laser energy delivery to the retina with multiple scan patterns,” said a spokesman for Nidek. “LPM reduces the thermal energy delivered to the retina by reducing the standard (yellow) laser treatment by a specified ratio. This treatment paradigm addresses various conditions, including macular oedema,” he said.

“As the indications of laser therapy evolve, more opportunities for the development of unique, innovative applications arise,” said Nidek President Motoki Ozawa. “The incorporation of the Low Power Mode provides optimal treatment outcomes with a wider range of applications, “ he said.
