The Laser Suite features Nd:YAG, Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) and argon lasers to equip students with the necessary skills to perform anterior segment laser procedures. Nd:YAG/SLT and Nd:YAG/argon combination lasers, in addition to a single platform Nd:YAG laser, allow for hands-on simulation training. Various laser simulation eye models and an assortment of laser lenses are utilized in the Laser Suite. Large flat-screen monitors permit visualization of the laser procedures in real-time, promoting group learning in the Laser Suite.
Peripheral iridotomy, trabeculoplasty, capsulotomy, vitreolysis and photothermal laser procedures are simulated during the lab portion of the Ophthalmic Laser and Minor Surgical Procedures course.
