Multicolor Laser for Multiple Applications

multi-applicationThe MC-500 Vixi / MC-500 enables efficient photocoagulation even through opaque media. In cases of cataract, better penetration is achieved with the yellow wavelength (577 nm) compared to green. In eyes with retinal hemorrhage, better penetration is achieved with the red (647 nm) wavelength.

laser-colors532 nm 

The 532 nm (green) is the most common wavelength for treating retinal pathology

577 nm

The 577 nm (yellow) laser is minimally absorbed by xanthophyll and is well absorbed by oxygenated hemoglobin compared to 561 nm and 568 nm lasers making it the wavelength of choice for lesions close to the macula. This wavelength has plentiful results achieved with the Dye lasers.

647 nm

The 647 nm (red) wavelength has been historically used in Krypton lasers. This wavelength is used for photocoagulation of deep choroidal pathology.


Multiple Scan Patterns

The MC-500 Vixi has 22 preprogrammed scan patterns to allow treatment of warying retinal pathologies.

Practical and User-Friendly Features
Intuitive graphic user interface and easy-to-read color LCD touch screen allows easy and quick setup and confirmation of the scan pattern and treatment parameters.
