Title
(EN) PROCESS FOR SAFELY PROVIDING RETINAL PHOTOTHERAPY BASED ON DETERMINATION OF RPE MELANIN LEVELS
(FR) PROCÉDÉ POUR FOURNIR DE MANIÈRE SÛRE UNE PHOTOTHÉRAPIE RÉTINIENNE SUR LA BASE DE LA DÉTERMINATION DE TAUX DE MÉLANINE DANS L'ÉPITHÉLIUM PIGMENTAIRE RÉTINIEN
Abstract
(EN)
A process for safely providing retinal phototherapy includes generating an interferometric signal or pattern by applying a near infrared light beam to a retinal pigment epithelium of a retina of an eye. A level or concentration of melanin within the retinal pigment epithelium of the retina is compared to a normal level or concentration using the detected interferometric signal or pattern. One or more treatment parameters of the retinal phototherapy is adjusted if the level or concentration of melanin in the retinal pigment epithelium of the eye exceeds the normal level or concentration by a predetermined amount.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé pour fournir de manière sûre une photothérapie rétinienne qui consiste à générer un signal ou un motif interférométrique en appliquant un faisceau de lumière dans le proche infrarouge à un épithélium pigmentaire rétinien d'une rétine d'un œil. Un taux ou une concentration de mélanine dans l'épithélium pigmentaire rétinien de la rétine est comparé à un taux normal ou une concentration normale à l'aide du signal ou du motif interférométrique détecté. Un ou plusieurs paramètres de traitement de la photothérapie rétinienne sont ajustés si le taux ou la concentration de mélanine dans l'épithélium pigmentaire rétinien de l'œil dépasse le taux normal ou la concentration normale à hauteur d'une quantité prédéfinie.
