The response to Laser Trabeculoplasty appears to be dependent upon the pre-treatment intraocular pressure (IOP). In other words, the higher the IOP before treatment, the better the response to Laser Trabeculoplasty.
Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) may be repeated multiple times so long as there is an initial IOP-lowering response to the first treatment.
Quick Review of how well do Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty (ALT), Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) and Micropulse Laser Trabeculoplasty (MLT) work.
There are three types of lasers currently used for trabeculoplasty glaucoma surgery : Argon, “Selective”, and Micropulse.
