Laser photocoagulation has been widely used to treat retinal disorders like diabetic retinopathy and macular degeneration for decades. The delivery systems - the slit-lamp - and especially their imaging capabilities have not evolved significantly in that time. The NAVILAS Laser System was recently developed based on a digital ophthalmoscope providing the retinal surgeon with the necessary tools to navigate across the retina, locate the relevant loci and perform an efficient and effective photocoagulation. It represents the ideal platform to evaluate novel treatment methods which cannot easily be visualized with standard delivery systems.
