Another drop-free option for glaucoma is a laser treatment called SLT (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty
), a painless procedure where a laser is used to open the eye's natural drainage channels.
Micro bypass systems are more efficient than laser trabeculoplasty
An alternative procedure that bypasses the need for a stent and carries a lower cost is Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty
The third LOT is laser trabeculoplasty
and the fourth LOT is a filtration surgery .
selective laser trabeculoplasty
(SLT) in order to determine whether the procedure could replace medication and found that over a period of 6 months, 180 or 360 degree SLT lowered IOP comparably to medical therapy in eyes previously treated with timolol-containing fixed combination eye drops.
The purpose of the study was to investigate the changes in the endothelial cell count and cell's polymegathism and pleomorphism after selective laser trabeculoplasty
(SLT) in open-angle glaucoma (OAG).
She underwent selective laser trabeculoplasty
in the left eye (16th week of pregnancy), although no beneficial effect was observed over 4 weeks (IOP=36 mm Hg).
Micropulse Laser Trabeculoplasty
(MLT) is a new, innovative treatment that can now be done for patients with Primary Open Angle Glaucoma.
Selective laser trabeculoplasty
is seen as a safe and effective first-line treatment for patients with early glaucoma, reported Lawrence Jindra, MD, of Columbia University, who presented findings at the American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting November 15, 2015.
(15,16) traditionally maximum tolerated medical therapy has been used before laser trabeculoplasty
or conventional surgery.
None of the subjects had undergone laser trabeculoplasty
before cataract surgery.
