FV Applies Laser Technology to Efficiently Treat Glaucoma

Glaucoma is common, and one of the most dangerous eye diseases, which can cause blindness with unclear symptoms such as eye pain, pinkeye, and sudden low vision. Glaucoma typically affects people who are middle-aged from 40 years old and the elderly, and especially people with diabetes, high blood pressure, and those using long-term eye drops that contain corticosteroid.

This condition, however, can be treated by laser treatment technology (micropulse). Such treatment is now the most advanced and safe means taking only 15 to 20 minutes to perform, and patients are able to go home immediately after treatment. This technology doesn’t damage the retina, nor leave any scars, and reduces medicine on the eyes so that it decreases the rate of relapse, as well as helps to improve and protect vision for the patient. Additionally, retinal laser IQ 577 also effectively treats retinal diseases such as Diabetic Macular Edema, age-related macular degeneration, retinal detachment, thrombophlebitis, retinopathy in premature babies, and damage in retinal blood vessels.
