In this study, we utilized yellow-wavelength laser treatment and measured aqueous outflow facility to establish a model for chronic glaucoma in rhesus monkeys. We then compared the effects of photocoagulation resulting from exposure to the yellow laser or to a green laser. Twelve rhesus monkeys were used to establish the model, and the yellow and green(More)
