SLT: Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty
When the normal course of eyedrop medication does little to relieve the high intraocular pressure present in the eye of a glaucoma patient, Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty may be the best option.
SLT is a form of laser surgery that lowers the pressure and helps glaucoma patients essentially improve their vision. Apart from being an alternative or supplementary to medication, it can also be used as an initial treatment for newly diagnosed patients.
