One hundred eighteen eyes with primary open-angle glaucoma underwent argon laser trabeculoplasty . Laser burns were placed in the anterior trabecular meshwork (ATM) in 58 eyes and directly over Schlemm's canal in the posterior trabecular meshwork (PTM) in 60 eyes. Twenty-nine eyes received 100 burns and 89 eyes received 50 burns distributed equally over 360 degrees. Peripheral anterior synechiae (PAS) developed in seven (12%) of the eyes having anterior trabeculoplasty and in 26 (43%) of those… CONTINUE READING
