NIDEK CO., LTD., has launched the LPM optional software, a low-power mode for the YLC-500 Vixi laser photocoagulator.
“LPM delivers a therapeutic effect to the retina by decreasing the laser power during photocoagulation. During treatment, the standard laser power is decreased by a specified ratio, achieving minimally invasive photocoagulation to the macular region,” said a company spokesman.
According to NIDEK, notable features of this laser include an auto forward function and arcade grid scan pattern for laser delivery.
“As there are no visible signs of photocoagulation during LPM treatment, these features are included to provide feedback during laser emission,” said the spokesman.
