SLT Laser

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a highly effective laser procedure that reduces the pressure inside the eye.  It uses short pulses of low-energy light to target cells in the drainage system to increase drainage and help lower the eye pressure.  Given the gentle action of SLT, it can be offered as an option for primary therapy in place of starting topical medications with less concern about side effects and patient compliance.  It is performed in the office and takes approximately 5 minutes.  There is a reported 93% success rate over 5 years with SLT as primary therapy.  You do still need routine follow-up to monitor your glaucoma with your eye care provider.  Give our office a call for a consultation to see if a SLT treatment is on option for you.
