SLT Laser for Glaucoma
Also known as Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, SLT is a simple, yet highly effective laser procedure that reduces the intraocular pressure associated with glaucoma.
We perform SLT laser surgery right here in our office, which typically takes no more than five minutes.
What Happens During the Procedure?
Prior to treatment, eye drops are administered to prepare the eye and provide mild anesthesia. Our doctors will deliver gentle pulses of light through a specially designed microscope into the eye we are treating. The entire process only takes a few short minutes. When the procedure is complete, your physician may treat your eye with anti-inflammatory eye drops.
Our doctors will follow up with you after each eye has had the SLT procedure and we should know where your intraocular pressure sits after approximately six weeks.
