Reliability and Safety

Reliable Laser Output:
 The YC-1800 employs the new technology to control the pulse number under the CPU “D-Pulse”, providing higher stability against environmental conditions and change over time.

Fast Operation:
 High-speed 3Hz firing rate offers very practical operation when encountering a moving eye or other patient difficulties. The YC-1800 can treat a wide variety of diseases, and its speed and efficiency allows comfortable operation. Great Number of Energy Settings: The YC-1800 offers 0.3-10mJ, continuously adjustable in increments of 0.1mJ, allowing the most precise tissue effect.

Super Adjustable Nd:YAG Offset:
 The YC-1800 can adjust the offset ±500 microns (25 micron steps) to meet the varied clinical needs. A different offset can be used for PMMA, silicone or acrylic lenses, and the offset can even be adjusted on the same IOL to compensate for a parallax effect in the periphery. This eliminates the need to manually defocus, permits a clear field of view, and minimizes lens pitting.

Safer Rotatable Aiming Beam:
 The dual 635nm aiming beam offers superior visual sensitivity, which in turn enhances the speed and ease of operation. The 635nm beam is also safer to human eyes since it achieves the same crisp and sharp intensity of 650nm or 670nm beam with half the power output. The YC-1800 has the ability to rotate the dual aiming beams 360º permitting work anywhere in the periphery without clipping the iris.

NIDEK Ophthalmic YAG Laser

NIDEK's compact YC-1800 ophthalmic photodisruptor offers the latest in innovative laser delivery and output technologies.  Fast operation and ultra adjustability make the YC-1800 YAG Laser treatment the finest available anywhere.

Key Features


Portable and User Friendly Design

Improved Operability:
 The “S-Switch” located on the joystick provides high operability, allowing doctors to change parameters (Energy up, Energy down and Ready / Standby*) while holding the joystick. Permits faster and easier operation, and eliminates need to look away from oculars to make parameter adjustments.

One-Touch Lock:
 The YC-1800 can smoothly slide back and forth and around, and the unit can be easily fixed and released at anywhere you like with the one-touch lock, offering high operability with improved safety.

Compact and Slim Design:
 The YC-1800 is Nidek’s smallest and lightest ophthalmic photodisruptor available and can be easily transported. Compact and slim design also allows greater flexibility in locating your arm rest.

Versatile Combo Laser:  

The YC-1800 can be easily connected to NIDEK’s Green Laser Photocoagulator (GYC-1000), allowing treatment of a wider range of patients and indications. Space requirements are minimized, and the combination adapter (optional) includes the split mirror illumination tower.
