Operation Modes
The Oculight SLx laser performs conventional photocoagulatrion and MIP procedures with capability of 3 different laser energy delivery modalities:


Treatment Pulse Clinical Indications Compatible Delivery Devices
CW-Pulse A single or repetitive (MilliPulse) continuous wave laser pulse. Traditional transpupillary photocoagulation (visible endopoints) and transscleral photocoagulation tratment of retinal and glaucoma disorders. SLA, LIO, EndoProbe handpieces, transscleral G-Probe and DioPexy Probes
MicroPulse A train of repetitive, very short, very low energy laser pulse to limit and confine laser damage to the minimum level sufficient to trigger the biological response needed for therapeutic effects, while leaving the majority of adjacent tissue unaffected. Sub-clinical, retinal-sparing (invisible) photocoagulation of diabetic macular edema and proliferative diabetic retinopaty. SLA and LIO
LongPulse An extended CW-Pulse allowing uninterrupted laser exposure up to 30 minutes. Mainly intended for transpupillary thermotherapy (TTT) hyperthermic procedures at low irradiance with a large spot size. Low irradiance retinal photocoagularion for localized hyperthermic TTT of choroidal neovascularization. Large Spot Size SLA, Large Spot Size LIO, OMA, and DioPexy Probe

The OcuLight family of infrared laser photocoagulators includes the OcuLight SL and OcuLight SLx models. These diode lasers serve as a single laser source for multiple delivery devices and applications, require no regular maintenance or special electrical/cooling, and allow easy transport with their compact design.

The OcuLight SLx is now available with Tri-Mode capability to maximize treatment flexibility offering CW-Pulse, MicroPulse, and LongPulse treatment options to perform traditional laser photocoagulation procedures and the potential to treat emerging applications.

G-Probe and DioPexy probes.

Clinical Aplications

The Oculight SLx laser system can be used to perform retinal photocoagulation and glaucoma procedures. While this infrared (810 nm) laser can be used for conventional photocoagulation, it also has some unique treatment capabilities such as transscleral retinal photocoagulation for retinal tears and detachments, transscleral cyclophotocoagulation for refractory glaucoma, transpupillary thermotherapy photocoagulation for choroidal lesions and subthreshold MicroPulse photocoagulation for diabetic retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration (AMD) tratments.

Device Differences

The multi-fiber Symphony adapter provides dual wavelenght laser delivery (532nm and standard/large spot 810nm) for clinical versatility and convenience.
The complete system consists of an Oculight SLx (810nm) laser, Oculight GLx (532nm) laser, multi-fiber adapter and cart. The Symphony System is compatible with an integrated CSO-style slit lamp or your existing Zeiss 30 slit lamp.

Portable Slit Lamp Adapters (SLA)
Can attach to over 50 models of Haag-Streit, Zeiss and similar type slit lamp to add the therapeutic capability of transpupillary laser photocoagulation to most standard slit lamps. Diagnostic functions of the slit lamp are not compromised. Micromanipulator versions are also available.

Laser Indirect Ophthalmoscope (LIO)
The TruFocus Laser Indirect Ophthalmoscope (LIO) is ideal for patients who are best examined and treated in a supine position. It is recognized as the industry standard-unique optical design eliminates the need for laser focus adjustments and accomodates a wide range of working distances. (Dual 532/810 n,, 810nm, and 810nm large spot models available)

The full line of probes provides the ophthalmologist with uncompromised laser treatment of all intravitreal pathologies. All probes have 3-meter long fiber-optic cables that are flexible and convenient to use.

Large Spot Devlivery Devices
Include a SLA, LIO and operating microscope adapter (OMA) indicated for all retinal photocoagulation including transpupillary thermotherapy (TTT) when used with an Oculight infrared system.

DioPexy Probe
Allows transscleral treatment of retinal holes, tears, and detachments. Accurate treatment location is assured with the transillumination of the retina by aiming beam. Clinical results are comparable to cryopexy with significantly less inflammation and post-treatment disconfort.

The G-Probe performs transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (TSCPC) to lower intraocular pressure in patients with uncontrolled glaucoma. The G-Probe permits selective ablation of ciliary processes. The patented design ensures accurate probe placement and spacing of treatment sites. Treatment with G-Probe induces significantly less inflammation and post-operative pain than cryotherapy and can be performed in an office setting.
