Presentation of unique, innovative microsurgical laser systems for ophthalmology using nanotechnology was held in Yaroslavl on October 18, the press service of the regional administration.
The developed system is the first in the world of mobile plant for vision correction. Designed Yaroslavl laser weighs 6 kg, while its predecessor — 48 kg. Became easier and a whole new set of hardware — 85 kg. The closest Japanese equivalent weighs 750 kg, U.S. — 600 kg. Power consumption of the unit is 300 watts versus conventional systems of this kind five kilowatts.
The new complex laser uses a unique technique which allows not burn and vaporize the damaged tissue, getting the most pure result.
"This unique technology — the 2012 model year. It is applicable not only in ophthalmology but also in gynecology, ENT treatment of diseases, neurosurgery, even in the aviation and electronic industries, "- said Alexander Tikhov, head of the clinic of laser eye microsurgery.
The development of medical technology on the basis of this Yaroslavl clinics have been conducted for over 10 years. Since 2003, the operations are carried out on an experimental laser created here "Olympus-2000".
Now the device is being tested in a planned operation. Tests on plastic has shown that he is doing the operation is better than other models. After a week of Yaroslavl microsurgical system will be presented to the medical community in Moscow at the International Conference in ophthalmic Eye Research Institute of RAM. In early November, the presentation device in Yerevan.
