Other Lasers

Nd:YAG Laser stands for Neodymium-doped Yttrium-Aluminum-Garnet Laser which Dr. Bozdech uses in his office to remove a posterior subcapsular opacification (scar) that sometimes develops after cataract surgery.  It causes blurry vision that generally clears up with laser. 

 

Argon Laser - Dr. Bozdech uses this laser system to treat retinal tears in order to prevent a retinal detachment/visual loss.  It is also used to treat Proliferative Diabetic Retinopathy and macular edema (retinal swelling). This is one reason why diabetics need at a minimum annual eye exams done at our clinic as we are have the expertise in detecting and equipped to deal with any diabetic eye compliactions before they lead to visual loss.

 

These laser treatments are available in our office and are covered by Alberta Health Care.
