DMG Productions uncovers the latest advances in ophthalmology.
Jupiter, FL— The award-winning series, Innovations with Ed Begley Jr., will feature IRIDEX technology in an upcoming episode scheduled to air winter of 2018 on FOX Business. (Check your local listings for viewing information.)
In this episode, the show will explore IRIDEX’s patented MicroPulse® Laser Technology; a tissue-sparing solution for the treatment of retinal diseases and glaucoma, and IRIDEX’s latest laser, the CYCLO G6™ Glaucoma Laser. MicroPulse® Technology splits a continuous-wave laser beam into short, repetitive, low energy pulses separated by a brief rest period. The shorter exposure time allows the tissue to cool between laser pulses, helping to minimize and prevent tissue damage during ophthalmic coagulation procedures.
“We are excited to be part of the show’s trajectory and honored to have our technology highlighted on a show of this caliber,” said Will Moore, CEO of IRIDEX Corporation. “MicroPulse® Technology is at the very core of our mission to provide advanced non-invasive treatment options to patients while enhancing the value of care.”
“We look forward to educating the public about MicroPulse® Technology’s ability to effectively treat retinal and glaucoma conditions, while causing little or no damage to the eye. By helping reduce - and at times eliminate - treatment risks associated with conventional, continuous-wave laser treatment, it has provided patients a more appealing solution to treat their eye conditions,” said Senior Producer, Michael Devine.
IRIDEX is a worldwide provider of laser-based medical systems, delivery devices, and consumable instrumentation for the treatment of glaucoma and retinal diseases. IRIDEX maintains deeply committed to the success of its customers, with comprehensive technical, clinical, and service support programs.
