Abstract Details



Purpose:

- Lasers in retina is a necessary evil, and if not used properly, it can be disastrous with greatest danger being that of potential danger to the patient’s macula during initial learning. A device known as Laser-i has been developed to combat this issue which simulates laser shots in an artificial retina.

Setting:

Laser –i was used in our centre for training retina fellows in lasers

Methods:

It uses a photographic film as an artificial diseased retina, mounted on a artificial eye whose optics resemble an aphakic / emmetropic eye. The film which responds to the laser shots and under exposure / correct exposure and over exposure gives a different visible reaction. It can be mounted on Slit Lamp of all available makes. The power setting used to get a reaction in the “Laser-i” may be higher than required in the human eye.

Results:

The Laser-i definitely is surely a step ahead in teaching lasers to the vitreo retina trainees giving them better hand- Eye - Foot Coordination along with avoiding any catastrophe in terms of macular photocoagulation

Conclusions:

Laser-i should hence be accommodated at all higher centers dealing with vitreo- retina training.
