Laser Treatment 激光治療
Laser Capsulotomy 激光後囊切開術
Posterior Capsular Opacification (PCO) is a common complication that can occur after cataract surgery. The posterior capsule that holds the artificial lens implant in place becomes cloudy or thickened over the time, causing blurred or hazy vision. The laser can create a small opening in the cloudy capsule, allowing light to enter the eye and improving vision.
Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) 選擇性激光小梁成形術
Primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), which is the most common type of glaucoma. It is characterized by an increase in intraocular pressure due to a blockage or narrowing of the drainage channels in the trabecular meshwork, which can lead to damage of the optic nerve and vision loss if left untreated. SLT uses a specialized laser to target and treat the trabecular meshwork, a drainage structure in the eye that regulates the flow of aqueous humor. By increasing the outflow of aqueous humor, it can help to lower IOP and reduce the risk of glaucoma progression.
Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI) 激光周邊虹膜切開術
Primary angle-closure glaucoma (PACG), which is a type of glaucoma that occurs when the drainage angle between the iris and the cornea becomes blocked or closed, preventing aqueous humor from draining properly and leading to an increase in intraocular pressure (IOP). LPI is a procedure that involves using a laser to create a small opening in the iris, which can improve the flow of aqueous humor and lower IOP.
The retina is the innermost layer of the eye that senses light. If the retina tears, it can separate from the back wall of the eye that leads to vision loss. Laser Barrier involves sealing the break with laser, which helps to prevent the vitreous from seeping through the break and causing a retinal detachment.
Panretinal Photocoagulation (PRP) 全視網膜光凝術
PRP is a laser treatment used to treat cretaiin retinal diseases, such as proliferative diabetic retinopathy and central retinal vein occlusion. The procedure involves using a laser to create small, evenly spaced burns throughout the peripheral retina, which helps to reduce abnormal blood vessels and prevent further damage to the retina.
Transscleral Cyclophotocoagulation (TSCPC) 經鞏膜睫狀體光凝術
TSCPC is a type of laser treatment that is used to lower the intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with glaucoma that is not well-controlled with other treatments, such as eye drops or other type of laser treatment. It targets and destroys the ciliary body, in order to reduce the production of aqueous humor and lower IOP.
Micropulse Cyclophotocoagulation (MPCPC) 微脈衝睫狀體光凝術
MPCPC is a type of laser treatment that is used to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with glaucoma. It is a newer and less invasive alternative to traditional cyclophotocoagulation, a laser procedure that uses high-energy laser pulses to destroy the ciliary body. MPCPC uses a micropulse laser that delivers short bursts of energy to the ciliary body. It is designed to minimize heat buildup in the tissue, which can reduce the risk of pain, inflammation, and other side effects associated with traditional cyclophotocoagulation.
Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) 光動力療法
PDT is a type of treatment used to treat certain eye conditions such as wet age-related macular degeneration, choroidal neovascularization, and other conditions involving abnormal blood vessels in the eye. It involves using a combination of a photosensitizing agent and a special type of light to destroy the abnormal blood vessels in the eye.
