Ellex invites you to Join LFR expert Dr. Larry Patterson, MD (Eye Centers of Tennesse) to learn the ins’ and outs of Laser Vitreolysis in the treatment of symptomatic floater patients. Hosted over dinner, this intimate discussion will give you a better understanding of how to integrate Laser Vitreolysis into your practice.

The following events are currently scheduled:

Atlanta, Georgia – 22 March 2018

LFR AND REFLEX TECHNOLOGY

Laser vitreolysis is an outpatient-based procedure, which involves the use of a nano-pulsed YAG laser to vaporize vitreous strands and opacities (floaters). Highly effective, it has a low complication rate and offers a high degree of patient satisfaction. It can also delay or obviate the need for surgery. LFR expert Paul I. Singh, MD (USA) has recently published a whitepaper addressing the benefits of Reflex Technology™ in the treatment of floaters:

“To achieve the precise spatial context required for laser vitreolysis, both “off-axis” (slit lamp in the oblique position) and “on-axis” (slit lamp in the coaxial position) illumination is required. This ensures that when a surgeon looks into an eye, he or she can clearly establish where the lens, floater and retina lie in relation to the floater and to each other. Three years of personal experience with Reflex Technology has revealed how titratable illumination can customize a surgeon’s visual experience during surgery. Because the illumination level provided with Reflex Technology is adjustable, it is possible to precisely titrate the amount of coaxial illumination as needed.”

Larry E. Patterson, M.D.

Dr. Larry E. Patterson, MD is an ophthalmology specialist in Crossville, TN and has been practicing for 34 years. He graduated from University of Tennessee / Memphis / College of Medicine & Surgery in 1984 and specializes in ophthalmology.

Dr. Patterson is the medical director of Eye Centers of Tennessee and a nationally known leader in the field of cataract and refractive surgery. Among many firsts, Dr. Patterson was the first physician in East Tennessee to perform Refractive Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery (ReLACS). His scientific articles and papers have appeared in numerous professional and medical publications. He serves as Chief Medical Editor for Ophthalmology Management and he has given numerous presentations for professional organizations around the world. Dr. Patterson’s passion is treating residents in underprivileged countries like the Island Kingdom of Tonga. He traveled there in 2000 and performed cataract and minor surgeries on many of their residents. He has made several trips to Mexico but frequents Guatemala the most.

LFR AND ELLEX

Advances in technology are a key driver in any ophthalmic practice, making procedures more effective – and, in some cases, safer. First introduced in the eighties with reports of limited success, LFR (laser vitreolysis) has undergone a renaissance with the recent innovation of technologies such True Coaxial Illumination, TCI™. Today, ophthalmologists can offer their symptomatic floater patients treatment with LFR with greater safety and efficacy than ever before.
