Abstract Details


We wished to evaluate outcomes of cyclodiode laser ablation in our cohort of patients who underwent the treatment between 2013 and 2017 in Galway University Hospital for glaucoma refractive to alternative treatment options.


Ophthalmology Department, University Hospital Galway, Ireland


We undertook a retrospective review of 21 cases of cyclodiode treatment. We stratified cases in terms of pre-treatment status and analysed the data looking at outcomes in terms of visual acuity, long term IOP control and further treatment needed in each case.


Outcomes of cyclodiode treatment were varied within our cohort with pre-treatment status a significant determining factor in success.


Cyclodiode is an important option in the treatment of complex glaucoma, however results are variable and it should be undertaken using a standardised protocol, with a guarded prognosis advised to the patient.
