    A new technique is described for treating peripheral retinal breaks using large-spot, diode laser retinopexy. A large-spot (1.2 to 3.0 mm) diode laser (810 nm) was used to treat patients with breaks in attached retina. Powers between 800 and 1,200 mW produced a uniform retinal photocoagulation...
