Abstract: The monocular indirect argon laser photocoagulator has been newly developed through NIDEK CO. LTD, Japan. This instrument consists of a monocular indirect ophthalmoscopic delivery system, a beam control box, a standard slit-lamp delivery system and a changeover switch. The characteristics of this photocoagulator are as follows: a easier application, better viewing of whole fundus during retinal photocoagulation, effective photocoagulation in supine position, posibility to change direct photocoagulator or indirect one by the changeover switch and photocoagulation viewed from all directions around the patient head. After confirming the condition and safety by experimenting on rabbits eyes, laser photo coagulation is to be performed on diabetic retinopathy, retinal tear, branch occlusion of retinal vein, retinal neovascularization, retinal macroaneurysm and retinopathy of prematurity. Especially this monocular indirect argon laser photocoagulation can be applied more effectively than xenon light coagulation on the retinopathy of prematurity thanks to overall view of the fundus in supine position. While on the other hand it has two unfavorable points, i.e. it is unstable to be fixed and that fine and delicate laser photocoagulation in the mascular area cannot be performed. So it is preferable to use it combinatively with a slit-lamp type by changeover switch, depending on the conditions of the fundus.
