Selective laser trabeculoplasty for glucoma: SLT is a gentle alternative for glaucoma therapy.
How does it works: SLT uses short pulses of low energy light to target the melanin pigment in the trabecular meshwork of the eye and causes a rebuiding of these cells and increases the outflow of fluid from the eye, thereby reducing the eye pressure and curing glaucoma.
Does it hurt:Procedure is done as an out patient procedure with topical anesthesia and there is no pain and no complications. It can be repeated if the pressure is not controlled after one treatment.
what is the benifit?It gives freedom from glaucoma eye drops and the glaucoma surgery can be delayed.
