Green Laser Photocoagulator

The compact and reliable GYC-1000, solid-state laser photocoagulator, offers the highest level of performance and versatility available. The unique GYC-1000 offers multiple delivery options including slit lamps, Binocular Indirect Ophthalmoscope (BIO), and endophotocoagulation.

Key Features:

  • Compact, quiet, energy efficient, and easy to use
  • Moving filter for excellent visualization
  • Detachable control panel
  • Easily upgraded to the YAG/Green Combo system

Flexibility & Versatility

Universal Design

The NIDEK GYC-1000 utilizes a diode pumped solid-state laser to achieve maximum laser life and great efficiency at low heat emission.

The GYC-1000 laser can be plugged into any standard power outlet and requires no external hookup for operation, yet achieves high power output (max. 1700mW on the cornea). The GYC-1000’s specially designed silent air cooling system minimizes the typical maintenance problems common to conventional plasma tube technology.

Light and Compact Green Laser

easy-to-handle-green-laserThe compact ( W215 x D280 x H90 mm) and lightweight (6.7kg / 14.8lbs) console offers maximum operational flexibility and treatment versatility – from the office to the O.R.

Power Requirement

The new technology – ITC (Intelligent Thermo Control) function – reduces the power requirement, offering optimum and economical control of the temperature under CPU management.

High Reliability

A digitally controlled instant duty cycle permits the laser to be used at very fast speeds and high powers for extended periods of time without failure. The GYC-1000 provides many years of superior, reliable performance.

Quiet Photocoagulator

The new technologies – DWC and IFC functions – reduce noise during coagulation:

  • DWC (Digital Wave Control) function: The DWC function reduces the mechanical noise, as the OPEN/CLOSE movement of the internal shutter is no longer necessary. The GYC-1000 controls the laser wave by digital signal from the CPU.
  • IFC (Intelligent Fan Control) function:  The CPU periodically monitors the internal temperature, and reduces noise by controlling the ON/OFF of the cooling fan. In addition, the GYC-1000 incorporates a less noisy fan so the system is quiet even when the fan is working.

True Continuous Wave (CW)continuous-green-laser

The GYC-1000’s solid state laser is a true continuous wave (CW), not a pulsed laser. CW laser delivery assures predictable treatment results by eliminating the potential risks associated with pulsed laser systems.

532nm Green Laser
Efficient, safe photocoagulation is a hallmark of the GYC-1000. The 532nm laser beam passes through the ocular media with low attenuation to minimize power loss.
  • Higher absorption by the pigment epitheliopathy, hemoglobin, and oxidized hemoglobin
  • Lower absorption by the xanthophyll pigment

Treatment With Precision
Exposure time of conventional lasers can be adjusted in 0.10 second increments, from 0.10 to 1.00 seconds. The GYC-1000’s exposure time can be adjusted in 0.05 second increments from 0.10 to 0.50 seconds, which is the most widely used range for photocoagulation. The finer adjustments provide more precise treatment for patients.
