Illuminated laser probes are for me the best tool to complete bimanual surgery in complicated cases i.e. diabetic tractional detachment. It allows to maintain good visibility whilst working in peripheral parts of the retina either with external indentation or when applying additional internal diathermy. Its bright and adjustable light power helps further in mild vitreous opacities like residual haemorrhage.
