Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the IOP reduction in patients of uncontrolled post PLI PACD without medications and to analyse the changes in visual fields in patients of PACD following Selective laser trabeculoplasty.

Setting:

Advanced Eye Center,Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh- A tertiary care center of North India

Methods:

Prospective(one year) non randomised interventional study of 34 PACD (24 PAC and 10 PACG) eyes treated with Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty in post laser iridotomy primary angle closure disease.

Results:

The mean pre SLT IOP of 34 patients (8 males and 26 females) was 23.76 ±1.92mm Hg. The post SLT follow up IOP was 16.00 ±2.74mm on day 1, 19.76 ± 4.68mm at one week, 18.67 ± 2.27mm at one month, 19.09 ± 2.29mm at three months and 18.42 ± 2.16 at six month and all were significant (p<0.001). No significant complications or side effect and no significant changes in visual field after six month.

Conclusions:

SLT can be an effective modality of treatment in PACD patient who continue to have moderately raised IOP post LI. SLT is a safe, cost effective procedure and provides better compliance.
