This comparative study was designed to evaluate effect of low-intensity speckle laser radiation in the green and red wavelengths on intraocular hemodynamics in 202 patients (202 eyes) with retinal vascular problems and without them. Irradiation was performed using “Izumrud” and “Rubin” adapters for an AMO-ATOS unit. Peak systolic velocity and peripheral resistance index in posterior short ciliary arteries and central retinal artery were measured. It was shown for the first time that green speckle laser radiation (wavelength 535 nm) has more pronounced (compared with the red light) effect on intraocular hemodynamics; thereby, it makes a greater contribution to the improvement of the visual function (e.g. in the case of glaucoma) and to the widening of the fields of vision.
