ILLUSTRATION

Laser Treatment (Glaucoma)

Share this animation:

This image was produced to illustrate the mechanism of laser treatment for narrow-angle glaucoma. Lasers are used to make a small opening in the peripheral iris (blue), altering the fluid dynamics within the eye and relieving intraocular pressure.

I wanted to share with you the news I just heard that the fabulous image you prepared for us has been selected for the cover of Cell! This is wonderful testimony to your talent and ability to rapidly reduce an idea to a stunning illustration. We were particularly impressed with your responsiveness and ability to quickly make significant modifications to meet our external deadlines. Many thanks for all your help, and congratulations!
