Laser photocoagulation is another treatment for diabetic macular oedema, vein occlusion, retinal tears and Age-related Macular Degeneration. The laser forms a clotting of the tissue around the leaking blood vessels, reducing and even stopping them from leaking further. The laser can also be used to treat glaucoma-related problems. Laser photocoagulation treatment is performed in the rooms at the Launceston Eye Institute as an out-patient.
