PASCAL Technology

The PASCAL Method involves short pulse duration, uniform pulses, and precision spacing, which has important effects on retinal tissue, including less RPE damage and less collateral damage.

Endpoint Management (EpM)

The process of selectively delivering a pulse with high speed galvo mirrors enables PASCAL to achieve short pulse duration with every spot in the pattern delivered at the same power level resulting in more consistently uniform burns than with conventional lasers.

Endpoint Management is a proprietary feature that uses a unique process to control power and duration more precisely, specifically at non-visible treatment levels. This allows optimization of therapeutic effects at these lower intensities. By using Endpoint Management with the PASCAL lasers, you can adjust the treatment from barely visible down to various degrees of less damaging levels, even down to completely non-detectable points while maintaining clinical efficacy. All of this adds up to safer, more effective treatment for your patients.

Learn about how Endpoint Management greatly enhances the selectivity and efficacy of laser photocoagulation and minimizes the associated tissue damage.

Pattern Scanning Laser Trabeculoplasty (PSLT) is a computer-guided therapy that provides precise placement of the laser patterns along the trabecular meshwork, independent of visibility of the lesions. PSLT provides rapid, precise, and minimally traumatic (sub-visible) computer-guided treatment with exact placement of the patterns. The patterns readily align to the curve of the trabecular meshwork, allowing faster and easier applications compared to other laser modalities. Being precise has never been so effortless.

At Topcon Medical Laser Systems, we’re committed to our valued PASCAL customers in good times and bad. During this time, many practices are temporarily closed or operating with reduced hours to minimize the spread of the coronavirus. We’ve compiled a number of resources and videos from fellow PASCAL doctors who are sharing the processes and protocols they have in place in order to adapt to the current crisis.
