Treatment of retinal diseases

Behandlung von Netzhaut-Erkrankungen mit navigierter Lasertherapie

For the treatment of retinal diseases such as diabetic retinopathy, your doctor may recommend the use of a retina laser. Broadly speaking, there are two types of systems – the conventional, slit lamp based laser, and the modern, navigated Navilas® Laser System.

"For me, treatment with Navilas was significantly more comfortable than treatment with other systems. I did not feel any pain."

Michael S., Göttingen

"I have had laser treatment multiple times due to my diabetes. I found the treatment with Navilas much more pleasant. With the old system, I felt more pain, especially around the outside. Treatment also took a lot longer."

Christa F., Berlin
