Diabetic Macula Edema

Advanced Treatment Paradigm

Navilas enables a sophisticated approach to clinically significant macular edema with precise treatments that take full advantage of accurate planning and placement of laser pulses to deliver efficient results for patients and doctors.1-5

Fluorescence Angiography Based Planning for Diabetic Macula Edema

Perfectly pinpoint microaneurysms on fluorescein angiography (FA). 

Alternatively, use Navilas® color fundus as a base image.

Thickness Based Planning for Diabetic Macula Edema

Grids with equidistant spacing to correctly cover thickened areas.

Confluent and over lapping grids are available for subvisible/ microsecond pulsed laser applications.
