Diode lasers were introduced in 1993. These were laseremitting diodes of gallium-aluminium-arsenide, which were portable and had a wavelength of emission of 810 nm. Most of the laser energy from the diode laser is absorbed by the pigment in the melanocytes in the choroid, which makes it more difficult for the operator to define the correct treatment power to use and, because of the depth of penetration, the diode laser appears to be more painful for patients than the argon blue-green or the Pascal laser.
