• A new endolaser probe with aspiration capability can be used as a flute needle for drainage of subretinal fluid and for endolaser treatment of a retinotomy site after vitrectomy. This instrument allows removal of vitreous and subretinal fluid during air-fluid exchange and immediate endolaser photocoagulation without exchange of instruments.
