First ever Laser course at RCO receives tremendous success

The Royal College of Ophthalmologists Annual Congress hosted a satellite laser course on Wednesday 21st May where ophthalmologists attended on a one to one tuition basis, keen to learn about the safe use of lasers when treating their patients.

Topcon attended with the PASCAL Streamline 577nm yellow pattern scan laser. The delegates loved how quick it was to treat diabetic retinopathy and macular odema. The laser delivers patterns rather than single spots, whilst using settings that are very gentle on the retinal tissue. The ophthalmologists were also very excited by ‘End Point Management’ sub threshold laser therapy which is unique to the PASCAL laser.

Graham Trevor, Director of Sales at Topcon commented, “it’s refreshing to meet so many ophthalmologists who are enthusiastic about the advances of new innovations in laser therapies, proving that lasers have a big part to play in the future of retinal eye disease. We’re already committed to attending next year’s laser course with continued support.”

Tony Moore, Chariman, Scientific Committee at the Royal College of Ophthalmologists appreciated Topcon's input by saying "Thank you very much for your help with the first ever Laser Training Course at the Royal College of Ophthalmologists Annual Congress.  Without the generous contribution of your company plus you and your colleagues, the course could not have run. The trainees have all benefitted from the teaching and experience of not only the faculty but also the laser industry “staff”."
