We are excite to announce that we have decided to upgrade our laser system at Pacific Retina CareSM! Navilas is the first all-digital system for navigating focal and peripheral retinal laser treatments. As some of you may know laser treatment can be very uncomfortable. But the 577nm wavelength laser is much more comfortable. The Navilas 577+ feels more comfortable, has less glare, and takes less time. Not only that but it is very accurate. I can premap treatment based on your OCT findings and fluorescein angiography photos. This navigated system can treat central and peripheral disease. In conjunction with injections, it makes my treatments even more effective for you. Listed below are all of the diseases the Navilas website says it can treat:
Retinal Photocoagulation for the treatment of Clinically Significant Diabetic Macular Edema (Focal or Grid Laser), Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy (Panretinal Photocoagulation), Sub-retinal (Choroidal) Neovascularization (Focal Laser), Central and Branch Retinal Vein Occlusion (Scatter Laser Photocoagulation, Focal or Grid Laser), Lattice Degeneration, Retinal Tears and Detachments (Laser Retinopexy). This laser can also treat CSR (Central Serous Retinopathy).
Hope to see you soon! Dr Tafoya
