PASCAL LASER & SPECTRAL OCT-SLO
The medical design excellence award winning PASCAL is a TECHNOLOGICAL BREAKTHROUGH IN PHOTOCOAGULATION LASERS . It is Multi-spot, ultra-fast & safe for Focal or PRP retinal photocoagulation. Delivering a precise pre-set pattern of up-to 56 spots in one shot PASAL has revolutionized retinal and glaucoma laser treatment.
Though being costlier than earlier lasers it compensates the patient by being safer, painless and faster and thus the patient tolerates more laser spots in one sitting and hence needs less laser sittings and less repeat visits to the doctor.
1. One or two Pascal sittings are enough for most patients as opposed to 4 to 6 or at times even more sittings needed with older lasers. It is faster and thus the patient tolerates more laser spots in one sitting and hence needs less laser sittings and less repeat visits to the doctor.
2. Many times patients need strong pain-killers and even injections to be able to tolerate older red or green lasers. Pascal is safer, painless.
3. The ultra-short pulse of only 10 to 20 milli-seconds by PASCAL greatly enhance the safety of this laser. In contrast red or green lasers have very long pulse duration of 100 to 300 milli-seconds for each shot. The fast, automatic Pattern Scan Multispot adds an extra punch to the treatment capacity and in addition to being painless this becomes more precise to a standard not possible with older single beam, single spot Argon, Diode, Red & Green lasers.
In addition the use of latest anti-VEGF medication / intra-vitreal injections like Avastin, Macugen or Lucentis / Accentrix at Grover Eye Laser & E.N.T. Hospital have made a world of a difference to the treatment of many eye diseases.
Scanning Laser Ophthalmoscope (SLO) with Spectral Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT) is an advanced spectral laser scan of the Anterior segment, Retina and Optic Nerve of the eye. It tests the inner structures of the eye in minute detail. The most advanced version of this machine is available at Grover Eye Laser Hospital and it shows all fine blood vessels of the retina along with the detailed report.
