Under this medication IOP in OD was 16 mmHg, while in OS laser iridotomy
maintained by itself a good IOP control (12 mmHg, without any treatment).
Prognostic factors for the success of laser iridotomy
for acute primary angle closure glaucoma.
* Sometimes a surgical peripheral iridectomy must be performed if the iridotomy
is too small and not functioning.
Effect of a Yag laser Iridotomy
on intraocular pressure in pigment dispersion syndrome.
, which makes a small hole in the iris through which fluid can drain but does not damage the eye.
One (2.5%) patient with PCIOL in our study had intractable raised IOP; peripheral laser iridotomy
was done and later on IOP remained normal.
I think your father is going to have laser iridotomy
to do this.
Further studies need to be conducted in our local settings to compare 0.5% timolol maleate with other anti glaucoma medications in controlling IOP spike after Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy and other common anterior segment laser procedures like Nd:YAG laser iridotomy
and Argon laser trabeculoplasty.
Similarly laser iridotomy
and peripheral iridectomy are also not necessary.
. For people with angle- closure glaucoma, this surgery uses the laser beam to make a tiny hole in the iris to improve the flow of the aqueous humor to the drainage meshwork.
Some clinicians have proposed the use of a laser peripheral iridotomy
in these patients to reduce the posterior bowing of the iris and prevent further pigment shedding.
An 85-year-old man, with a history of primary-angle closure glaucoma in his right eye, who had previously undergone laser iridotomy
, cataract surgery, and trabeculectomy, presented to the Department of Ophthalmology, Yokohama Minami Kyosai Hospital [Yokohama, Kanagawa, Japan].
