Abstract :

Arandomised controlled clinical trial recruiting treatment naive patients with severe to proliferative diabeticretinopathy requiring panretinal photocogulation. Patients would receive PASCAL laser in randomly allocated eyeand standard argon laser in the fellow eye. The primary outcome measure was the angiographic occurrence ofmacular edema. Secondary outcomes included visual outcome including visual acuity, color vision, visual field,contrast sensitivity were measured. Questionnaires assessinpatient discomfort and quality of life were also done.Duration of procedure as a function of efficiency and cost effectiveness of the laser was also comparedResults cannot be disclosed at this point and will be presented at the meeting. Conclusions: Results cannot be disclosed at this point and will be presented at the meeting
