Washington, DC-Pulsed treatment with the 532-nm, diode-pumped, frequency doubled, solid-state green laser (OcuLight GLx, Iridex) appears to be a safe and effective method for closing the retinal arteriolar connections that feed early stage lesions of retinal angiomatous proliferation (RAP), said Robert P. Murphy, MD.
