Modern Laser Vitreolysis
Karl Brasse, MD MRCOphth
Compared with its early clinical use in the 1980s, modern laser vitreolysis provides more efficient and safer energy profiles, offering reliable and repeatable outcomes that provide a low rate of complications combined with a high degree of patient satisfaction. In this interview, Dr. Karl Brasse addresses his experience to date using the Ultra Q Reflex laser in the treatment of symptomatic floater patients.
“Karickhoff, one of the original pioneers of laser vitreolysis, in my opinion, may have advocated the procedure before its time; the technological capabilities were not as superior as they are today. I strongly believe that the success I have encountered with laser vitreolysis is due to the system that I use.”
