laser iridotomy

peripheral iridectomy as performed by laser.

laser iridotomy

a procedure for the treatment of closed-angle glaucoma in which an opening is created in the peripheral iris so that the aqueous fluid is granted access to the trabecular meshwork drainage system. It is usually performed after control of an acute attack when signs of ocular congestion have disappeared. It is also used for prophylaxis against anticipated attacks.
