Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy

A fast and selective treatment

Navilas offers rapid pattern delivery at all available pulse lengths while enhancing selectivity with navigated pattern prepositioning.



Navilas’ 30ms pulse rectangular grid  offers the fastest pattern delivery, while  navigated pattern pre-positioning also allows surgeons to efficiently deliver ETDRS-type 100ms pulses in a regular pattern using standard or infrared illumination (1,2,3,5).



Navilas allows surgeons  to overlay diagnostic images over the live retina to plan and deliver selective treatment patterns in the periphery for research purposes. (2).

Navilas allows surgeons to deliver selective treatment patterns in the periphery, with uniform energy distribution.  (4).
