Proprietary MicroPulse Technology
MicroPulse technology finely controls thermal elevation by “chopping” a continuous-wave (CW) laser beam into a train of repetitive short pulses allowing the tissue to cool between pulses and reduce thermal buildup preventing visible tissue damage. We have several articles published by various physicians that explain in detail the great benefits of using MicroPulse. Please visit our articles page.
“The MicroPulse P3 Device has become an essential part of my armamentarium for use in glaucoma surgical procedures. It provides a very safe and efficacious solution for IOP control. I have used MicroPulse P3 for some of my most complicated cases but also I feel comfortable enough using it for patients with earlier disease in which we want to avoid a filtering bleb or the placement of hardware in the eye.”
Efficacy – Confidence in IOP Control
Long-term results from National University Hospital (NUHS), Singapore prospective clinical study3:
IOP reduction at 18 months, N = 38 patients
Med reduction (2.1 to 1.3)
Success rate with 1.3 sessions
NUHS Prospective Clinical Study2
Multi-Center Retrospective Data1,3
“The MicroPulse P3 Device has given me over 30% IOP lowering. With patients that are non-compliant with their medication, or we are really trying to keep off their medication, the MicroPulse P3 device allows me to treat patients more aggressively.”
