Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Laser trabeculoplasty (LTP) is a relatively new procedure requiring evaluation for long-term effectiveness and associated complications. The authors review some 300 LTPs and identify complications. Among the most serious are transient or persistent rise in intraocular pressure, iritis, and progression of visual field loss. The authors recommend LTP as an alternative to glaucoma surgery in selected patients not controlled by medications.
