Effect of SLT Location on Treatment Outcomes

Study Description

Effect of SLT Location on Treatment Outcomes

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a glaucoma treatment that has been shown to effectively lower intraocular pressure by increasing aqueous outflow through macrophage recruitment. There is evidence of increased drainage in the nasal quadrants of the eye. This study aims to compare whether there is a difference in the reduction of eye pressure when SLT is performed nasally and temporally.
