Some eye conditions such as Diabetic retinopathy, Diabetic macular edema and Retinal tear, can be treated using an Argon laser.

 

Using this treatment, the eyedoctor is trying to avoid an eye condition getting worse or to cure it.
Dilating drops are instilled and a very intense beam of green light is directed on to the retina.
Argon laser photocoagulation is an outpatient procedure and it takes just a few minutes to perform.
