What is MLT laser?

What are the advantages of Micropulse laser trabeculoplasty (MLT)? Micropulse laser is a gentler form of laser treatment. It uses a laser energy wave that has been divided into tiny pulses of laser instead of a longer continuous wave of laser. Previous lasers use a continuous wave of laser energy.

What is MLT and SLT?

The greatest difference between ALT, SLT, and MLT is the amount of time that laser energy is applied to the trabecular meshwork. In ALT, the pulse duration is usually 0.1 seconds versus 3 nanoseconds in SLT. For MLT, the typical pulse duration is 0.2 seconds divided into 100-microsecond pulses at a duty cycle of 15%.

What kind of laser is an SLT?

In SLT, the laser is a frequency-doubled (532-nm) Q-switched Nd:YAG laser (Selecta 7000, Coherent Medical Group, Santa Clara, CA). The laser settings are fixed except for the power. Spot size is 400-microns and pulse duration is 3 ns. The large spot size results in low fluences (mJ/cm2).

How does MicroPulse laser work?

MicroPulse® laser therapy is a tissue-sparing solution for the treatment of retinal diseases and glaucoma. With MicroPulse, a continuous-wave laser beam is chopped into a train of short, repetitive, low energy pulses separated by a brief rest period which allows the tissue to cool between laser pulses.

What is trabeculoplasty of the eye?

Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) is an in-office procedure that reduces intraocular pressure in patients with glaucoma. The laser is applied through a special contact lens to the drainage system of the eye where it stimulates a biochemical change that improves the outflow of fluid from the eye.

Can I drive after laser trabeculoplasty?

There are typically no restrictions in activities following laser treatment. You may return to your normal daily routine. You may want to avoid driving right away if both eyes have been treated in the same session because of the temporary blurring from the jelly used during the laser treatment.

What is micropulse laser trabeculoplasty ( MLT )?

Bond Eye Associates has invested in an even more advanced laser system that has shown to do no harm to the patient’s trabecular meshwork. This new technology is called MicroPulse Laser Trabeculoplasty (MLT). MicroPulse laser trabeculoplasty (MLT) uses repetitive, low-energy laser pulses that are separated by brief rest periods.

Which is laser marking system does MLT use?

Laser marking systems from MLT offer high-end solutions in terms of product safety, serialisation and authentication certification. Industry is increasingly seeking efficient solutions for protection against counterfeiting.

How is the MLT lens used in glaucoma?

The MLT lens is a laser lens with an integrated reference guide to assist placement of subthreshold laser spots during MLT. Repeatable comprehensive therapeutic capabilities: glaucoma and retina Operating Room efficient with dual port and wireless footswitch

How is MLT used in the food industry?

Whether in the food industry, pharmaceuticals or automotive industry and suppliers (first and second tier / Tier-1, Tier-2), MLT laser marking systems are used in many different areas. We are independent as regards the selection of laser sources (e.g. CO2, Nd:YAG, DPSS or fibre lasers) and offer a wide range of processing methods.
