Advanced technology in retinal laser treatment



We got the PASCAL retinal laser, the first in Bahrain for the pain free and comfortable treatment of patients with diabetic retinopathy and retinal diseases.

The 2007 medical design excellence award winning PASCAL is a TECHNOLOGICAL BREAKTHROUGH IN PHOTOCOAGULATION LASERS : Multi-spot, ultra-fast & safe for Focal or PRP retinal photocoagulation. Delivering a precise pre-set pattern of up-to 56 spots in one shot PASAL has revolutionized retinal laser treatment.

The Pascal laser is a new, innovative tool designed to treat retina conditions like diabetic retinopathy and retinal holes and tears. It is unique to any previous laser instrument in that it delivers a “single-shot”, predetermined pattern of multiple, precision laser applications. This allows for much quicker, safer application and much less discomfort to the patient.

Thirty minute laser treatments, delivering hundreds of shots to the retina are now a thing of the past at The Macula Center. Large treatments of hundreds of precisely positioned laser applications can be completed in five minutes or less using the Pascal laser.

In 2005, the FDA approved the Pascal laser for use on vascular and structural conditions of the retina. The Pascal is most commonly used for:

  • Proliferative & Non-Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy. PDR, NPDR.
  • Choroidal Neovascularisation. CNVM, SRNVM, 
  • Age-related Macular Degeneration. AMD, ARMD
  • Branch & Central Retinal Vein Occlusion. BRVO, CRVO.
  • Lattice degeneration
  • Retinal tears, holes. Retinal detachment.
  • Iridotomy, Iridectomy for Narrow Angle Glaucoma.
  • Laser Trabeculoplasty for both Open and Narrow Angle Glaucoma.

The PASCAL affords us the ability to select patterns that are conformable to the pathology being treated and allows alignment and rapid delivery of up to 56 spots in less than 1 second when treating diabetic retinopathy, choroidal neovascular membranes (CNVM), and retinal holes and tears.

The PASCAL laser is unique in that it rapidly delivers a predetermined pattern of multiple, precision laser spots
