Neodymium:yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser energy was transsclerally applied to the ciliary body of 56 eyes of 37 dogs for treatment of glaucoma. Forty-four eyes were glucomatous at the time of treatment, and 12 normotensive eyes with ciliary cleft closure were treated prophylactically. Glaucoma was primary in 35 dogs and secondary in 2 dogs (1 eye in each dog). Energy was delivered by a general surgical Nd:YAG laser via a hand-held, 600-muc-diameter flexible quartz fiber.
