Modern laser treatment for the retina. Because your eyesight is important to us...
Treatment of retinal diseases
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.

The unique Navilas® retina laser
The Navilas® Laser System is the only retina laser system to date that uses advanced eye-tracking technology, making the highly modern treatment of retinal diseases possible with extreme precision and safety, less pain and fewer subsequent treatments.
"For me, treatment with Navilas was significantly more comfortable than treatment with other systems. I did not feel any pain."
"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."
