The hypotensive effect of selective laser trabeculoplasty depending on iridocorneal angle pigmentation in primary open angle glaucoma patients

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) is applied to reduce intraocular pressure in primary open angle glaucoma therapy. It selectively subjects trabecular pigmented cells to a pulsed, frequency-doubled Nd:YAG laser. The biostimulatory effect on trabecular macrophages was also postulated even in low-pigmented angles. The aim of the study was to… (More)
