Demonstrates the new Multispot Lasar that Friends purchased earlier this year using a very generous legacy from Marie Manuel, who is the sister of a Moorfields patient.

This laser will be used to treat patients with diabetic retinopathy, and is a vast improvement on the lasers previously used as it is much faster and more comfortable for patients. It can produce multiple eg. upto 16 laser spots at a time rather than just 1 , and each laser spot lasts 30 milliseconds rather than the 0.10 seconds with the standard laser.
