Quantel Medical’s cutting edge lase technology has brought constant and multiple innovations to glaucoma physicians worldwide since 1993. SoLuTis is a Q-switched 532nm SLT laser that adapts to Haag Streit type slit lamps. It offers an excellent alternative to eye drops, surgery and classic laser procedures, improving glaucoma treatment for both patient and physician. The SLT procedure is characterized by its absence of thermal effects: it comes to photo-regeneration. Using a green 532nm wave length selectively absorbed by pigmented cells, the SLT therapy consist in delivering large laser impacts (400µm) within an extremely short duration (0,000000004 sec). This specific treatment settings limit the heat-related damage and preserve the trabecular meshwork. Selective laser trabeculoplasty is an efficient non-invasive glaucoma laser treatment, used more and more as a first-line therapy, and is as effective as the « classic laser treatments » but repeatable over the time. An easy and fast (5 minutes) treatment procedure, resolving patient compliance issues and also reimbursed by most insurance policies. Main characteristics: – SLT Laser – Short duration exposure (4ns) with a large spot size (400µm) – Primary or adjunct glaucoma therapy – Simple, fast and repeatable laser procedure – Painless and non-invasive treatment – No compliance issues – Portable, and clips-on to your slit lamp!
Compact and adaptable design
Compact and adaptable, SoLutis is an ideal addition to every doctor’s practice.
Its laser head can easily be connected on most Haag Streit type slit lamps allowing users to perform SLT laser treatments with their diagnosis instrument.
Advanced SLT technology
Full-featured and high performance SLT laser ensuring a gentle and non-invasive photoregeneration of the trabecular meshwork cells.
In contrast to classic laser procedures (ALT, MLT, PLT, …) the SLT procedure is characterized by its absence of thermal effects.
Advanced “photoregeneration” therapy eliminates the destructive aspects of ALT.
SLT laser energy is selectively absorbed by pigmented cells.
Its specific treatment settings limit the heat-related damage and preserve the trabecular mesh work.
Unique treatment settings
- Extremely short duration: 4 ns <=> 0.000000004 sec!
- Large Spot Size: 400µm
- Ideal 532nm wavelength to target melanin cells
A safe, and clinically proven treatment
SLT is a proven therapy supported by more than 10 years of clinical data:
- An efficient non-invasive glaucoma laser treatment. Used more and more as first-line therapy As effective as the “classic laser treatments” but repeatable over time
- Alternative / compliment to medical therapies
- Adjunct to surgery and classic laser therapy
An easy and fast treatment procedure
- An easy office procedure
- A 5 minute painless treatment
- Improved follow up for your patients (patient compliance)
- A reimbursed procedure by most insurance policies
SoLuTis uses a large spot size and an extremely short pulse duration that are fixed.
These fixed parameters avoid any kind of visible or subvisible thermal effect. The energy absorption is limited to the melanin cells and avoids any thermal spread to the adjacent tissue. This prevents the thermal damage that occurs with classic photocogulators (ALT), pattern scan lasers (PLT) or subthreshold mode lasers (MLT).
