Abstract

Retinal diseases account for the vast majority of ophthalmologic disorders. Over the past years, laser-based approach has been successfully used. Despite introduction of other potentially innovative, beneficial and successful therapeutic methods, lasers are still considered the gold standard. In this review, we discuss the spectrum of currently prevailing laser methods and new insights into novel perspectives and techniques regarding laser management of retinal disorders. This paper is divided into three sections. Two parts, already published in previous issues, have presented methodology with the spectrum of laser-based techniques and literature review investigating the existing knowledge in laser management of diabetic retinopathy, diabetic macular edema and vascular retinal disorders. Finally, the current one, consists of the principles guiding laser treatment of retinal tears, retinal degeneration, retinopathy of prematurity, age-related macular degeneration and other retinal diseases.
