RETINAL LASER THERAPY


A laser is a concentrated beam of light.  Retinal lasers are able to target the back of the eye without damaging the front of the eye.  Laser surgery is non-invasive and is performed at the clinic on the day of consultation.


We provide the most up-to-date technology, employing both green laser for retinal photocoagulation and yellow laser for the macular diseases.
