The new Nidek YC-200S ,the successor of YC-1800, is a combination laser Yag & SLT that incorporates a suite of technological innovations:
- SLT mode
The YC-200 S plus offers an advanced SLT mode. SLT is highly effective for treating open angle glaucoma.
The SLT-NAVI feature presents an intuitive display on the progress of laser treatment, providing the surgeon with important feedback.
- Refined laser delivery with lower energy
The YC-200 S plus / YC-200 achieves 1.6 mJ plasma threshold in air*1, delivering accurate and robust treatments with lower energy.
*1 A plasma threshold of 1.6 mJ is achieved in ordinary room conditions (in-house data).
- Clear and sharp field of view
An improved optical design that optimizes resolution and contrast, and an expanded focal depth provide a clear view of pathology and treatment. A unique illumination system with an LED light source results in a bright, near-natural view that minimizes aberration. The sharp, clear optics provide an enhanced view of the treatment area.
- Precise aiming beam
Motorized rotatable aiming beam (YAG mode)
The dual aiming beam offers superior targeting with a 360° rotating aiming beam that can avoid corneal opacities and achieve more accurate focusing
- Optimized operating distance
Maximized working distance allows easier manipulation of the contact lens, and the short operating distance decreases surgeon fatigue during treatment.
*Operating distance denotes the distance from the microscope eyepiece to the patient’s eye
- Unique joystick: Utility S-switch
The S-switch on the joystick changes treatment settings without shifting gaze from the oculars. The ease of use allows surgeons an increased level of comfort during treatment.
