Ophthalmic lasers allow precise treatment of a variety of eye problems without risk of infection. The argon laser is filled with argon gas that produces blue/green wavelengths. These particular wavelengths are absorbed by the cells that lie under the retina and by the red haemoglobin in blood, but the blue-green wavelengths can pass through the fluid inside the eye without damage. For this reason, the argon laser is used extensively in the treatment of diabetic retinopathy, a severe disorder of the retina that causes blood vessels to leak
The argon laser can burn and seal these blood vessels. Retinal detachment is another serious eye problem that can be treated by the argon laser.
The laser is used to weld the detached retina to the underlying choroid layer of the eye. Several forms of glaucoma, which is a leading cause of blindness, are also treated with argon lasers
