Description Until recently, most patients with age-related macular degeneration (AMD) could not expect their vision to improve or stabilize with or without treatment. Now, the Opal Photoactivator laser from Lumenis has revolutionized the standard of care and offers patients renewed hope.

Lumenis designed the Opal Photoactivator especially for use in photodynamic therapy with verteporfin, a drug produced by CIBA Vision Corporation, the eye care unit of Novartis AG. The Opal laser used in conjunction with Visudyne therapy represents an incredible advance in ocular photodynamic therapy (PDT). In this approach, the Opal laser is used not as a cutting tool but to activate a therapeutic drug in the patient's eye, providing a minimally invasive, focused treatment for AMD.

The Opal offers innovative features unavailable on any other laser -- features that ensure uncompromised treatment, safety, and patient care.
