A series of pathological conditions such as pupillary block glaucoma, angle block glaucoma, acoria, pupillary membranes and goniosynechias of various origins have been treated successfully by means of pulses emitted from a Nd: YAG Q-switched laser above optical breakdown threshold. Since linear absorption is not required, non-pigmented or entirely transparent structures are easily dissected by this method. We have also opened the supraciliary and suprachoroidal space in a series of cases of… CONTINUE READING
