PURPOSE To study the medium and long-term efficacy of primary argon laser trabeculoplasty in open angle glaucoma with especial emphasis on avoidance of additional medical therapy. METHODS Records of 168 patients with chronic open angle glaucoma or pseudoexfoliation glaucoma who underwent primary argon laser trabeculoplasty between 1987 and 1995 were studied retrospectively (duration of follow-up 1-8 years, mean 4.1 years). Mean baseline intraocular pressure was 28.7 mmHg (range 22-60 mmHg… CONTINUE READING
