Nidek YC-1600 Yag with a GYC-2000 532 Green
AMERICA North (USA-Canada-Mexico)
Photocoagulator Combination Dual Laser System
Perfectly integrated into the factory YC1600 slit lamp and factory table, this laser operates to perfection and will save you quite a bit of space in your laser room.
The YC Series by Nidek is a remarkable YAG that has a proven track record time and time again. It is a portable unit weighing only 53 pounds and fully self-contained, self-calibrates, and is literally plugin ready.
The NIDEK YC-1600 is one of the most reliable YAGs offered by NIDEK. It was designed in particular for applications in posterior capsulotomy (post-cataract therapy) and iridotomy. However, the YAG laser can also be used for trabeculotomy, anterior capsulotomy, and for IOL polishing.
Precise and Easy Aiming
The YC-1600 utilizes dual aiming beams that can be rotated at 360 degrees. This rotation permits the targeting of oblique tissues with greater ease and precision.
Compared to a conventional laser’s 650nm wavelength aiming beam, the YC-1600’s 633nm wavelength aiming beam offers superior visual sensitivity, which in turn enhances the speed and ease of operation. The 633nm beam is also safer to human eyes since it achieves the same intensity of 650nm with half the power output.
The focus shift mechanism makes it possible to shift the Nd: YAG laser beam focal point posterior or anterior to the aiming beam focal point by up to 500 mm, in 25 mm increments.
Test firing is automatically carried out when the system is started and when the energy is changed. The energy value appears on the display, allowing the surgeon to check the power level at any time.
In addition to the single pulse, a burst mode is also selectable. Continuous firing at 2 or 3 pulses can be accomplished with a single activation of the trigger.
Several safety features are incorporated to protect both surgeon and patient. These include a filter to reduce the reflected Nd: YAG beam to 1/100,000 or less, an emission indicator to show when the laser is ready to be fired, a diagnostic function to monitor condition of the system, and more.
