An untreated glaucoma often causes blindness - even today. There are a wide variety of reasons for glaucoma disease. The most famous is high intraocular pressure (IOP). Long before visual acuity is affected and parts disappear from the field of view, the disease is already present and should be treated. Lasers provide a safe and fast way to effectively and rapidly reduce intraocular pressure. A.R.C. Laser offers you a wide range of lasting treatments of open angle glaucoma and angle block glaucoma.

Selective laser trabeculoplasty


As an alternative to intraocular pressure reduction by medication, it is recommended to use the CITO to treat SLT. This treatment of open angle glaucoma is almost painless and is carried out by your ophthalmologist via the laser-coupled slit lamp.

SLT is a method that achieves significant pressure reduction in a very gentle manner. It is comparable to medicinal therapy, but it is much more cost-effective, faster and more patient-friendly.

FOX 810 and FOX IV 810 for ciliary body treatment by microsecond pulses closes the gap between SLT & traditional CPC

µCPC – a quite new form of therapy in open angle glaucoma is based on very short clocked laser pulses in the microsecond range (µs) and thus represents a gentle, non-tissue-damaging treatment of the ciliary body muscle. The diode laser FOX 810 and FOX IV 810 offers this non-invasive therapy, which aims to increase the outflow of the aqueous fluid in order to effectively reduce intraocular pressure (IOP).

During outpatient treatment, only a special designed laser probe is placed on the surface of the eye, an invasive opening of the eye is not necessary. The laser energy is introduced into the eye, more precisely the ciliary body, by a slow movement of the μCPC probe along the two hemispheres. This reduces the typical side effects of traditional cyclophotocoagulation to a minimum. Thereby a substantially earlier use of the diode laser is possible. Ideal in patients who do not respond to regular medication, desire to reduce medication or who have not experienced sufficient pressure reduction after SLT treatment.


FOX 810 for traditional cyclophotocoagulation

In more serious cases, we offer the FOX 810 diode laser for cyclophotocoagulation (CPC). This non-invasive treatment is very effective, since by means of selective coagulation the ciliary body partially is damaged and thus the production of the aqueous fluid can be reduced. This treatment is done with the appropriate Cyclo Probe predominantly in open angle glaucoma with a very high pressure.


Q-Las: THE Nd:YAG laser for your practice

In the case of angle-closure glaucoma, a serious but rather rare disease, we offer a suitable laser for this treatment with the Nd:YAG laser Q-LAS. In this case, a hole is lasered into the iris to compensate the pressure differences between the anterior and posterior chamber and thus the flow of fluid to the front of the eye is restored.
