Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty is an Alternative to Medicine for Treating Glaucoma


Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a  type of laser eye surgery used to decrease intraocular pressure (IOP) in open-angle glaucoma patients. This is achieved by increasing the drainage of aqueous fluid from the eye through the trabecular meshwork.  After SLT, the IOP drops quickly the first day and stabilizes over the first two months.  SLTs are usually performed in cases where glaucoma and IOP are unable to be controlled with glaucoma medical eye drops;  however, this procedure can be performed at anytime during the management of glaucoma.  Recent studies have suggested that SLT is the same, if not better, than current eye drop medications as a first line treatment and SLT is gaining popularity as a first line treatment instead of or in addition to medicine eye drops.
