Less aqueous humor: Cyclodestruction

Repetitive pulses of DL delivered with the micropulse (MP) MP3 -probe allows thermal focalization of the photo-trauma, only the ciliary epithelium gets affected. A step forward to continuous diode Laser CPC with the G-Probe. With the on-off cycle of MP, nearby nonpigmented structures don’t heat up minimizing collateral damage. This results in lower incidence of vision-threatening complications. Micropulse CPC is opening an avenue toward primary surgery of glaucoma in patients with good vision. A harmless “non invasive glaucoma surgery” (NIGS).
