This patient receives Subliminal® treatment: 1090 spots, 160 microns, at 300mW (titrated at 850), encompassing most of the macular area, sparing the foveal area. 6 weeks after VA is 20/30 with complete SRF resolution and no visible reaction on autofluorescence.

Next follow up visit, 12 weeks after treatment: VA 20/25.

Final follow up visit, 12 months after treatment: VA 20/22, with a progressively more reconstituted outer retina.

SubLiminal® laser treatment was fully effective to resolve this CSCC recurrence in a context of unavailability of PDT.

Subliminal laser is an alternative to the conventional continuous-wave laser for the treatment of retinal or macular diseases. 

In contrast to the conventional laser, the therapeutic effect of the subthreshold laser is not accompanied by thermal retinal damage. This fact is of particular importance when a treatment near the fovea is required.

This laser method has been proven to be a safe and effective treatment option for macular pathologies such as central serous chorioretinopathy (CSC), diabetic macular edema (DME).
