Abstract

Results of the technical development in laser technology created new possibilities in ophthalmic surgery, too. The easy access to various lasers offers an extraordinary opportunity for eye surgeons. At the Department of Ophthalmology of the University Medical School of Debrecen we performed 1400 laser treatments in 1996. Out of that 1100 were retinal Argon laser coagulations because of diabetic retinopathy, 200 YAG laser capsulotomies because of secondary cataract, and 30 laser iridotomies because of glaucoma. Additional 70 laser treatments were performed for special indications. During the laser treatment of the retina and the choroid we use Argon gas lasers, whereas the Nd:YAG laser used in the anterior segment of the eye is a solid-state laser. Our pulse mode modus synchronized Nd:YAG apparatus can produce megawatts of energy in nanoseconds. Authors give an account of the Nd:YAG lasers' possibilities in therapy (capsulotomy, iridotomy), present the most frequent indications of treatments in 1996, and compare it with international literature data. Authors demonstrate the newest principles of the Nd:YAG laser treatment of secondary membranes that are occasionally formed in the anterior chamber especially in the area of the pupil following cataract surgery.
