PURPOSE: Cyclodestructive procedures are traditionally used in cases of glaucoma that are refractory to medical and surgical therapy. The goal of this chapter is to describe the indications, contraindications, techniques, and pitfalls of cyclodestructive procedures, including transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (TCP), micropulse TCP (MP-TCP), endoscopic cyclophotocoagulation (ECP), and ultrasound cilioplasty. METHODS: A literature search for cyclodestructive techniques was performed, and relevant studies were included for evaluation and review...

We report a case of a 60-year-old Asian male who developed radiation retinopathy 23 years after initial radiotherapy for nasopharyngeal carcinoma and was successfully treated with yellow pattern 577-nm micropulse laser. Secondary macular edema and visual acuity improved following a single treatment session with minimal scarring. Yellow pattern micropulse laser is a safe and effective treatment for macular edema secondary to radiation retinopathy.

Objectiv. To evaluate the efficacy of subthreshold micropulse yellow (577 nm) laser photocoagulation in diffuse macular edema (DME) in rural and urban patients of south-eastern Poland. MATERIALS AND METHOD: Seventy-five eyes of 75 patients with diffuse DME were treated with subthreshold micropulse yellow laser photocoagulation with a 5% duty cycle at an energy level. The laser exposure time was 20 ms and the spot diameter was 100 μm. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), reading vision (Snellen) and optical coherence tomography-determined central retinal thickness (CRT) were estimated before and 2, 4 and 6 months after laser treatment...

REVIEW
Daniel Su, Jean-Pierre Hubschman
The role of retinal photocoagulation as a first line therapy for various retinal pathologies has decreased with the introduction of anti-vascular endothelial growth factor therapy. However, retinal laser therapy remains an important treatment modality, especially with the emergence of micropulse subthreshold treatment and the integration of newer technology such as augmented reality and semi-automated delivery. This review summarizes current evidence for micropulse laser as a treatment modality and discusses the role of new technology such as augmented reality in the future of laser therapy...

Transport of coal by train through residential neighborhoods in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada may increase the possibility of exposure to particulate matter at different size ranges, with concomitant potential negative health impacts. This pilot study identifies and quantifies train impacts on particulate matter (PM) concentrations at a single location. Field work was conducted during August and September 2014, with the attributes of a subset of passing trains confirmed visually, and the majority of passages identified with audio data...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: There are currently various options available for glaucoma treatment procedures ranging from laser to penetrating to nonpenetrating surgeries. Innovations in glaucoma surgical therapeutics include features such as external application, focused tissue effects, and minimal manipulation as these factors all help lower the risk of side-effects in addition to increasing the success rate of the treatment. Traditional diode laser transscleral cyclophotocoagulation (TSCPC) is invasive and destructive...

Atmospheric observations of greenhouse gases provide essential information on sources and sinks of these key atmospheric constituents. To quantify fluxes from atmospheric observations, representation of transport-especially vertical mixing-is a necessity and often a source of error. We report on remotely sensed profiles of vertical aerosol distribution taken over a 2 year period in Pasadena, California. Using an automated analysis system, we estimate daytime mixing layer depth, achieving high confidence in the afternoon maximum on 51% of days with profiles from a Sigma Space Mini Micropulse LiDAR (MiniMPL) and on 36% of days with a Vaisala CL51 ceilometer...

PURPOSE: The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of subthreshold diode laser micropulse (SDM) in comparison with conventional laser photocoagulation in the treatment of the diabetic macular edema (DME). METHODS: Sixty-eight eyes from 68 patients with clinically significant DME were divided randomly into two equal groups. In the first group, SDM photocoagulation was employed, while conventional laser photocoagulation was performed on the eyes of the second group...

BACKGROUND: Central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC) is usually a self-limiting condition; however, there is potential for recurrence and permanent visual defects. Aviation demands perfect vision to minimize risk to pilots and aircraft. Consequently, this ailment disqualifies pilots and pilots to be. CASE REPORT: A fully trained fighter pilot with 1260 h in fighter airframes has been contending with central serous chorioretinopathy in the right eye over the course of 3 yr...

Purpose. To compare the efficacy and safety of subthreshold micropulse yellow wavelength laser (SMYL) and low-fluence photodynamic therapy (PDT) in the treatment of chronic central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC). Methods. Thirty-three eyes of 30 patients with chronic CSC received either PDT (18 eyes) or SMYL (15 eyes) therapy. Best corrected visual acuity (BCVA), subretinal fluid (SRF) height, and central macular thickness (CMT) were evaluated at the baseline visit and one, three, six, nine, and 12 months after the therapy...

Many clinical trials have demonstrated the effectiveness of subthreshold phototherapy with no visible damage in retinal vascular diseases, such as diabetic retinopathy. We aimed primarily to investigate the effect of subthreshold diode micropulse laser (SDM) treatment on mouse retinal pigmented epithelium (RPE) cells. The expression of angiogenesis-modulating cytokines in response to SDM was also explored. The least toxic laser dose was selected by measuring cell viability with MTT assay and 5 % duty cycle (DC) was chosen for use in further experiments...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the relative efficacy of subthreshold micropulse diode laser versus conventional laser photocoagulation for the treatment of diabetic macular edema. METHODS: A comprehensive literature search was conducted to find relevant randomized controlled trials (RCTs). Efficacy estimates were determined by comparing weighted mean differences of the mean change of best-corrected visual acuity and central macular thickness from baseline. RESULTS: Six RCTs were selected for this meta-analysis, including 398 eyes (203 eyes in the subthreshold micropulse diode laser group and 195 eyes in the conventional laser group)...

REVIEW
Hemal Mehta, Mark C Gillies, Samantha Fraser-Bell
This review provides a perspective on published and ongoing clinical trials of vascular endothelial growth factor inhibitors (anti-VEGF agents) combined with laser therapy for diabetic macular oedema (DMO). Although there was little short-term benefit in combining prompt macular laser with anti-VEGF therapy for centre-involving DMO in the Diabetic Retinopathy Clinical Research Network (DRCRnet) Protocol I study, deferred macular laser was still required in over 40% of study eyes in DRCRnet Protocol T. Macular laser was applied in more than 30% of eyes with centre-involving DMO receiving ranibizumab in the RISE and RIDE studies...

A systematic review of the recent literature regarding the implementation of the liquefaction in cataract surgery and its short-term and long-term outcomes in various parameters that affect the quality of patients' life, including visual rehabilitation and possible complications was performed based on the PubMed, Medline, Nature and the American Academy of Ophthalmology databases in November 2013 and data from 14 comparative studies were included in this narrative review. Liquefaction is an innovative technology for cataract extraction that uses micropulses of balanced salt solution to liquefy the lens nucleus...
