"The 10-year study is an excellent validation of our work toward creating a new durable therapy for eye conditions associated with diabetes," said Dominik Beck, PhD., IRIDEX President and CEO. "Our goal is to create a paradigm shift in the way physicians treat retinal diseases.  Considering the durable clinical benefits, the safety of the procedure and the economic benefits to the healthcare system, leading physicians are beginning to conclude that MicroPulse can be used earlier in the disease progression and can be, at least, incorporated into any treatment regimen – either alone or in conjunction with drug therapy."

About MicroPulse Technology

MicroPulse is a tissue-sparing laser therapy that works by electronically "chopping" the laser emission into trains of microsecond pulses. This enhances the physician's ability to more precisely control the laser effects on target tissues, offering the potential for ocular treatment with less collateral effects than conventional laser treatments.
