Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), is a new procedure performed to lower intraocular pressure. Call CG&RC at 877-810-3937 to schedule your appointment.
Glaucoma is a serious disorder of the eye that can cause irreversible damage to the optic nerve, leading to severely compromised sight or even blindness. Fortunately, ophthalmologists have developed procedures for early detection that measure the pressure of the fluid inside the eye. When this pressure builds too high, due to lack of drainage of the aqueous humor or excessive production of this substance, which fills the inside of the eyeball, treatment can be pursued immediately, before long-term effects set in.. The traditional treatment has been medication in the form of eyedrops. However, as technology advances and we learn more and more about how to use lasers and other advanced techniques, new and improved treatments for glaucoma have become more common. Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty is one of these procedures, as is the ExPRESS Mini-Shunt.. In traditional laser treatment for glaucoma, the laser reacts with the trabecular meshwork of the eye. The trabecular meshwork is a matrix of ...
A 77-year-old man presented with stromal keratitis that began shortly after he had selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT). The patient had no history of keratitis. One week after SLT, the corrected dis...
The use of Laser Eye Surgery for treatment for Glaucoma has become an important treatment option for many patients. In the past, Laser Eye Surgery for Glaucoma was considered a "last resort" before Glaucoma Surgery. Today, thanks to advances in lasers, using a laser treatment for Glaucoma in conjunction with the eye drop treatment or sometimes even using the laser treatment as the primary treatment are excellent options to help maintain control and slow or stop the progression of the disease. Laser Treatment for Glaucoma is widely used to help prevent vision loss and is becoming a Glaucoma treatment of choice for many patients who have problems with eye drops or are unable to use eye drops properly.. Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty (ALT) is a type of glaucoma laser treatment that helps to reduce the Intraocular Pressure (IOP) by creating more effective drainage of fluid through the Trabecular Meshwork. Unfortunately, for some patients, the effect of ALT decreases over time, rendering it ineffective. ...
In a small randomised, prospective study, OBrart and co-workers1 attempted to prove that trabeculectomy (n=25) provided better intraocular pressure (IOP) control than viscocanalostomy (n=23). However, we have serious concerns about the methodology of this study that need to be addressed.. Viscocanalostomy is characterised by the injection of viscoelastic into Schlemms canal.2 However, this was not performed in half of the patients randomised to this group. This would be as inappropriate as using an antimetabolite in only half the patients in the trabeculectomy group, and then comparing this entire group to the viscocanalostomy group. Although the authors do state that the subgroup of patients with intracanalicular viscoelastic injection was inferior to trabeculectomy, this cohort consisted only of 12 patients and it is not known how many had completed follow up after 18 months. Surely, these small numbers are insufficient to draw such conclusions.. We are also concerned that the use of ...
Results 18 DS (15 patients), 17 trabeculectomy (16 patients) and 15 controls (15 patients) were examined. Successful had a taller intrascleral lake (IL) and thicker conjunctival/Tenons layer (CTL) than non-successful cases (513.3 vs 361.1 µm, p=0.027 and 586.7 vs 251.1 µm, p,0.001, respectively). CTL thickness correlated with IOP (r=−0.6407, p=0.004). CTL thickness was significantly different between controls, DS and trabeculectomy (mean (SD): 203.3 (62.6) vs 418.9 (261.9) vs 604.1 (220.7) µm, p,0.0001). Successful trabeculectomy cases had a taller bleb cavity (BC) than non-successful cases (607.5 vs 176.7 µm, p=0.041). CTL microcysts were detected in 50% of DS and 52.9% of trabeculectomy cases (p=1).. ...

Bevacizumab is an anti vascular endothelial growth factor(anti-VEGF) substance that is known to reduce neovascularization and fibrovascular proliferation in inflammatory conditions, including post-operative inflammation. It has shown efficacy in numerous ocular conditions(off-label), that includes Age related macular degeneration, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, neovascular glaucoma and corneal neovascularization. It is being explored as an option for preventing recurrence of pterygium and as an adjunct to improving outcomes of trabeculectomy. There is a debate as to the mode and duration of bevacizumab administration for trabeculectomy. This study aims to compare a single subconjunctival dose of bevacizumab with topical therapy over one month in terms of outcomes of trabeculectomy surgery, non-progression of field loss and stable intraocular pressure(IOP) control ...
Purpose: : To investigate the effect of 180º & 360º Selective Laser Trabeculoplasy (SLT) treatment on intraocular pressure (IOP) & trabecular outflow facility (TOF). Methods: : One eye of untreated POAG (n=27) or OHT (n=10) patients (IOP 22-35 mmHg) was randomized to receive 180º (n=18) or 360º (n=19) SLT treatment. Fellow eyes of patients which did not require treatment were used as controls (n=8). TOF (electronic Schiotz tonography, C, µl/min/mm) and IOP (mmHg) were measured at pre & 1 month post SLT. Results: : No significant changes in IOP & TOF were seen in the controlled eyes between baseline and one month. In 180º SLT group: IOP were reduced from 24.4 ± 4.1 (Mean ± SD) at baseline to 19.0 ± 5.2 at 1 month (p,0.001); while TOF were increase from 0.08 ± 0.04 to 0.11 ± 0.04 at 1 month (p=0.003). In the 360 º group: IOP were reduced from 24.4 ± 4.1 (Mean ± SD) at baseline to 19.0 ± 5.2 at 1 month (p,0.001); while TOF were increase from 0.08 ± 0.04 to 0.11 ± 0.04 at 1 month ...
PURPOSE To compare biometric changes measured with contact and noncontact methods after mitomycin-C-augmented trabeculectomy. METHODS In this prospective study, 31 eyes from 31 glaucoma patients scheduled for primary trabeculectomy were enrolled. Biometric parameters including axial length (AL), anterior chamber depth (ACD), and lens thickness (LT) were measured using contact ultrasound biometry (UD-6000 Ultrasonic A/B scanner biometer; Tomey Corporation, Nagoya, Japan) and a noncontact optical biometry device (Lenstar; Haag-Streit AG, Koeniz, Switzerland). Measurements were taken the day before trabeculectomy and then compared with measurements obtained 3 and 6 months after surgery. RESULTS The AL and ACD were significantly decreased at 3 and 6 months compared with baseline values taken with each biometry method. There was a significant increase in LT measured by the Lenstar device at the 3- and 6-month follow-up. At both the 3- and 6-month follow-up, the mean AL measurement reduction with the
Purpose: : To investigate the incidence, risk factors, and long-term effects of postoperative flat anterior chamber (FAC) development on the success rate of trabeculectomy with mitomycin C. Methods: : Data on 384 consecutive subjects (384 eyes) who underwent trabeculectomy or phacotrabeculectomy with mitomycin C at our institution between April 1, 1999 and March 31, 2009 were evaluated. Those who developed postoperative FAC were classified into 3 severity grades for analysis. Grade 1 was defined as contact between the iris and the cornea with touch limited to the periphery of the iris, Grade 2 as entire irido-corneal touch, and Grade 3 as total apposition between the iris and the cornea along with contact between the lens and the cornea. The control subjects were those in whom FAC was not diagnosed. The hazard ratios (HRs) for the failure of trabeculectomy caused by FAC after 5 years were examined in conjunction with multivariate Cox proportional hazards regression analysis. The risk factors for ...

In a large 3-year trial, selective laser trabeculoplasty showed better control of IOP and better cost-effectiveness than eye drops as a first-line treatment for glaucoma and ocular hypertension. According to the authors, these findings suggest that selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) should be offered as a first-line treatment, supporting a change in clinical practice. The Laser in Glaucoma and
Your treatment will be performed in a specially equipped laser room. It does not require a surgery center. Once you have been checked in and settled comfortably, drops will be used to numb your eye; no injections or needles are used. When your eye is completely numb, an eyelid holder will be placed between your eyelids to keep you from blinking.. Your doctor will hold up a special lens to your eye as a high-peak power beam of green light is aimed at the lens and reflected onto the meshwork inside your eye. You may see flashes of bright green or red light. The laser will selectively target melanin-containing cells, resulting in increased fluid outflow. You will not feel any pain during the procedure. It takes 10-20 minutes.. Your eye pressure will be checked shortly after your procedure and drops may be prescribed to alleviate any soreness or swelling inside the eye. You should relax for the rest of the day. Follow-up visits are necessary to monitor your eye pressure. While it may take a few ...
A trabectome is a surgical device that can be used for Ab interno trabeculotomy, a minimally invasive glaucoma surgery for the surgical management of adult, juvenile and infantile glaucoma. Trabecular meshwork is the main site of resistance for aqueous outflow. Hence most glaucoma surgeries work by either removing the trabecular meshwork or bypassing that. As angle surgeries such as Trabectome follow physiologic outflow pathway, the risk of complications are significantly lower than filtering surgeries. The Trabectome handpiece is inserted into the anterior chamber and positioned into the Schlemms canal. Bent tip of its footplate fits into the canal and smoothly advanced parallel to the angle. The energy delivered by electrode cause plasma mediated trabeculat meshwork ablation without damaging nearby structures. Active irrigation of trabectome surgery system helps to keep anterior chamber formed during the procedure and precludes the need for ophthalmic viscoelastic device. Viscoelastics tend ...
Pattern scanning laser trabeculoplasty uses computer guidance for precise delivery of laser spots to the trabecular meshwork. At 6 months post-treatment, percentage IOP reduction was similar in eyes undergoing PSLT performed with a 577-nm laser compared with selective laser trabeculoplasty using a 532-nm laser. ...
AIM To study the correlation between severity of primary congenital glaucoma (PCG) and success of three types of surgery. METHODS This was a retrospective review of all records of patients diagnosed with PCG up to age 1 year who underwent goniotomy, trabeculotomy, or combined trabeculotomy-trabeculectomy with mitomycin C as initial procedure between 1982 and 2002 at the King Khaled Eye Specialist Hospital, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. 532 paediatric glaucoma patients below age 1 year (820 eyes) with a minimum 1 year follow up were identified. The main outcome measures used for the surgeries were postoperative intraocular pressure, stability of the corneal diameter, and maintenance of corneal clarity. Surgical success was defined as a postoperative intraocular pressure of | or = 21 mm Hg without additional medical or surgical therapy, and with decreased corneal oedema, stabilised corneal diameter, and no additional optic nerve damage for at least 1 year after surgery. Complications, time of surgical failure,
47 eyes included in the Trabeculectomy group and 37 eyes in the CLASS group. Both groups had a follow-up of 1 year.

Selective laser trabeculoplasty, or SLT, is a gentle and non-invasive treatment for glaucoma. This quick and simple procedure is an effective option for most glaucoma patients, but is especially suited to patients who cannot tolerate or are unable to self-administer glaucoma medications. Highly effective, SLT is used as primary treatment for early stages of open angle glaucoma, and can also be used in combination with drug therapy, or as an alternative therapy when drugs fail. It is also a flexible treatment option, because it can be repeated, if necessary, depending on the individual patients response.. The SLT technique is not associated with adverse side effects and is a pain-free, outpatient-based procedure performed in our surgery center laser room. SLT uses short pulses of low-energy light to target the pigment in specific cells of the affected eye. In response, the bodys natural healing mechanisms go to work to rebuild these cells - a process that improves drainage and lowers ...

The person does not have to be admitted to the hospital. But children may stay in the hospital overnight following surgery. And in some cases, your doctor may recommend that you stay in the hospital.. Right after surgery, antibiotics may be applied to the eye. Also, antibiotics may be injected under the lining of the eyelid (conjunctiva). After surgery, the eyelid is usually taped shut, and a hard covering (eye shield) is placed over the eye. The person wears a dressing over the eye during the first night after surgery and wears the eye shield at bedtime for up to a month. Corticosteroid medicines are usually applied to the eye for about 1 to 2 months after surgery to decrease inflammation in the eye.. A person who has a trabeculectomy usually has a checkup the following day with his or her eye specialist.. Any activity that might jar the eye needs to be avoided after surgery. People usually need to avoid bending, lifting, or straining for several weeks after surgery.. After surgery, people who ...

Unfortunately there are a small percentage of patients who may continue to worsen. This is because not all glaucoma nerve damage is due to high IOP. Also there are rare instances when the vision worsens in spite of a totally uncomplicated and successful surgery. Never-the-less, in my experience those individuals who achieve a controlled, low or normal IOP with surgery tend to do very well with respect to glaucoma progression.. P: At what time would you feel another doctor could take over post-operatively if one wants to travel or be a snow bird and leave the state for months?. Dr. Pro: Every surgeon may have a different comfort zone. In general most of the important post-op interventions, like cutting sutures to help control the IOP, are done by the first month to six weeks.. P: Are there more floaters in the eye after a trabeculectomy? I see more floaters but have had several surgeries.. Dr. Pro: Could be. Also there may be visual disturbances, such as from the iridectomy (hole cut in the iris ...

glaucoma surgery Questions and Answers : What are the complications of glaucoma surgery?, Which food should I not eat after glaucoma surgery?, Which food is good for recovery after glaucoma surgery?
Once you are felt to be stable in the recovery area, you will be discharged and seen the next morning at the Dean McGee Eye Institute. On the morning after surgery, if you have a patch, it will be removed, and your eye will be carefully examined.. It is typical for the vision to be initially blurred after surgery. Depending on how your eye responds to the surgery, it may take a few or several weeks for the vision to recover. Immediately after the surgery, the pressure may be high or low. If it is high, your doctor will likely cut some of the internal sutures at the operation site with a laser, which is usually painless. This allows the surgeon to adjust the tightness of the trap door or the scleral flap to adjust the flow of fluid and lower the pressure in the eye. The external stitches placed during the surgery dissolve on their own. The fluid that is released from the inside of the eye collects beneath a thin membrane of tissue called the conjunctiva. This forms a filtering bleb, which may ...
Standard glaucoma surgeries, trabeculectomy and external tube-shunts are major and sometimes necessary surgeries. While they are very often effective at lowering eye pressure and preventing progression of glaucoma, they have a long list of potential complications. Many patients require these procedures and they have been utilized successfully for many years for preventing further vision loss and progression of glaucoma. More recently, the MIGS group of operations have been developed to reduce some of the risk associated with traditional glaucoma surgeries. MIGS procedures work by using microscopic-sized equipment or implants, lasers and tiny incisions. While they reduce the incidence of complications, some degree of effectiveness is also traded for the increased safety.. Many of the MIGS group of operations are new innovations and some have been mainstays of treatment for sometime like ECP. At Glaucoma Center of Michigan, we are constantly striving to learn the latest developments and most ...

Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery can be done at the same time as standard cataract surgery and provides less risk than traditional glaucoma surgery.
The goal of treatment is to preserve useful vision by reducing intraocular pressure. The lesions are usually irreversible established, therefore, treatment is directed to stop disease progress and prevent visual impairment.. Normally used eye drops that help produce less fluid within the eye or to facilitate its drainage. Is the initial treatment of the disease, but the decrease in pressure does not usually exceed 30%.. When the "silent blindness" has appeared, the solution to our problem through surgery. Trabeculectomy has been the standard operation in the surgical treatment of glaucoma, although new developments point to a new less invasive surgery.. In our center we practice called escleroctomia not deep drilling, intervention which avoided penetrating the interior of the eye. This will significantly reduce the complications associated with glaucoma surgery, as these are mainly due to the sharp decrease of the tension caused perforating techniques. The postoperative period is much more ...
