d) Laser iridotomy
increases iris concavity, thereby reducing iridozonular contact
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].
Kim and coworkers  used either pharmacological agents or laser iridotomy
to reduce IOP and observed a highly significant correlation between IOP reduction and AEL decrease.
Iridolenticular contact decreases following laser iridotomy
for pigment dispersion syndrome.
I think your father will have laser iridotomy
to do this.
Peripheral laser iridotomy
was performed to release the pupillary block.
Because of uncontrolled IOP, we performed laser iridotomy
in both eyes (Figure 4).
One (2.5%) patient with PCIOL in our study had intractable raised IOP; peripheral laser iridotomy
was done and later on IOP remained normal.
Prognostic factors for the success of laser iridotomy
for acute primary angle closure glaucoma.
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.
* Peripheral Nd: YAG laser iridotomy
to reestablish the communication between the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye by making an opening in the peripheral iris.

on intraocular pressure in pigment dispersion syndrome.
