MicroPulse Laser Treatment

Retinal MicroPulse Laser Therapy Treatment for Open-Angle Glaucoma and other Eye Disorders

Today's technology provides advanced treatment for glaucoma and other eye disorders. Colorado residents can access this state-of-the-art eye care in our Boulder, Lafayette, Longmont and Greeley offices. At the Eye Care Center of Northern Colorado, we offer MicroPulse Laser Therapy (MPLT) to safely and effectively treat patients with retinal disorders and open-angle glaucoma.

MicroPulse works by electronically "chopping" the continuous-wave laser emission used in conventional laser treatment, into trains of tiny, repetitive, low energy pulses separated by a brief rest period in between. This “micropulsing” allows the tissue to cool between laser pulses, preventing damage.
