New Hope for Glaucoma Patients Who Can't Take Medication

The Era of multidiode laser technology in the treatment of eye Pressure

Glaucoma, also known as eye pressure among people, is known as an insidious disease in the medical world due to its lack of discernible symptoms. Dünyagöz Etiler Prof. Dr. Ümit Aykan shared information about the application areas and advantages of the latest technology multidiode laser devices in the treatment of this disease, which results in damage to the optic nerves. Dr. Ümit Aykan says: “The treatments applied with multidiode laser technology, in addition to being highly effective, also minimize the risks of infection and other complications since it does not require direct intervention to the eye.”

Experienced ophthalmologist of Dünyagöz Etiler Prof. Dr. Ümit Aykan shared information about glaucoma (eye pressure), which is one of the most common diseases that cause permanent vision loss, and the newest technology multidiode laser used in its treatment. Dr. Ümit Aykan said: “Glaucoma often occurs with the inability to drain the fluid accumulated in the eye, increased intraocular pressure, and damage to the nerve responsible for vision. In this process, this ailment, which has no unique symptoms, is known as the most insidious eye disease due to the difficulties in understanding it by the patient. It is very important to get regular eye examinations for the early diagnosis of this condition, the most important symptom of which is the increasing darkening in the outer part of the visual field.”

Effective and safe treatment with multidiode laser technology

Making statements about the state-of-the-art multidiode laser treatment, which offers a solution, especially for patients who cannot get results and cannot use the medication in the treatment of glaucoma, Prof. Dr. Ümit Aykan said: “The main purpose of glaucoma treatments is to reduce the level of fluid produced in the eye or to open drainage (outflow of fluid) pathways. It is possible to get results and keep glaucoma under control in some of the patients using the medication treatment applied in the form of eye drops. However, not every patient is suitable for medication treatment due to eye structure and other different reasons. For these patients, new multidiode laser technology comes into play. It is possible to treat glaucoma safely and quickly with the multidiode laser. The multidiode laser, which does not harm the eye, has high efficiency, and provides a solution without any incision or implant in the eye, works with the principle of laser ‘micro signals’ that are frequently repeated and pulsed at low energy. In this way, the treatment is carried out without damaging the tissue. In addition to being effective and safe, we are now able to offer treatment to a much larger amount of patients using this treatment, since it does not cause significant permanent damage to the area where it is applied and adjacent areas.”

No pain or risk of infection and a fast-healing process

Sharing important information about the points to be considered after the treatment and the healing process, Prof. Dr. Aykan said: “After the treatment, patients may need to use an eye bandage until the end of the day due to the sensitivity to light. Most of the patients do not feel any pain or ache after the application. In people with minor redness or discomfort in the eye, these symptoms disappear within a few days. To prevent the risk of infection, even if it is low, anti-infective medications are given to patients. Under normal conditions, the intraocular pressure decreases to normal levels after a few weeks of treatment. After the treatment, performing regular eye examinations of glaucoma patients and monitoring the intraocular pressure after laser application are also important for the success of the treatment.”

To whom can BOX: Micropulse P3 cyclophotocoagulation be applied?

  • Patients whose eye pressure cannot be controlled despite using all available medications in the treatment of glaucoma
  • Patients with allergies or intolerance to eye pressure medications
  • Patients who cannot consistently supply their glaucoma medications
  • Patients who do not use glaucoma medications regularly
  • Patients who have previously undergone laser treatment but whose eye pressure has risen again
  • Patients who cannot physically tolerate glaucoma surgery
