Argon Laser Endophotocoagulation
Argon laser photocoagulation has been demonstrated to be useful in the treatment of diabetic retinopathy, retinal breaks and rubeosis iridis. Many individuals who undergo vitreous surgery can benefit from photocoagulation at that time to treat retinal breaks or proliferative diabetic retinopathy. It is possible that such photocoagulation may prevent neovascular glaucoma in some cases.
