Abstract

Histopathologic examination of eight cynomolgus monkey eyes and one human eye revealed that both argon and krypton laser photocoagulation cause adhesion between the neurosensory retina and the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) within 24 hours of treatment. The neurosensory retina remained attached at the sites of laser burns despite surrounding retinal detachment in untreated areas. This early adhesion with the laser is useful for the treatment of eyes in which the retina has been recently reattached such as at the end of a vitrectomy for a retinal detachment with proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) or after a pneumatic retinopexy. It is also useful for the treatment of retinal breaks without detachment.
