Selective Retina Therapy

Boris Považay, Ralf Brinkmann, Markus Stoller, Ralf Kessler


Laser photocoagulation of the retina has been performed for more than 40 years and has enabled the denaturation of retinal layers by the deposition of heat in tissue. However, for treatment of pathologies associated retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), excessive damage of adjacent tissue, especially the damage of the photoreceptor layer is considered to be disproportionate.
