Modern Retinal Laser Therapy: Principles and Application

Jeffrey K. Luttrull

This book, written by a pioneer in the field, describes the philosophy of the novel treatment from its conception through clinical testing and trails up to the current scientific knowledge. This memorable and triumphal journey has started with the creation of the idea to use non-damaging laser power to launch reparable processes in the human retina. This was in diametric contrast to philosophy of using predominantly destructive laser photocoagulation techniques, which eliminate diseased tissue only in hope to improve natural history of the disease. The novel concept was followed by establishing physical theory by the author and observing a biochemical evidence of retinal repair mechanisms by other groups.

Clinical observations on countless number of patients have solidified the theory attesting to the effects of nondestructive and reparative stimulating therapy. The elegance of this approach is that retinal repair is agnostic to initial retinal process leading to damage and is, therefore, applicable for use in various retinal conditions irrespective of their origin.
