Almaty, Kazakh Eye Research Institute, The Central President`s Clinic


40 patients (45 eyes) with primary glaucoma were treated with SLT. In 27 eyes the anterior chamber angle was wide and in 18 it was narrow. In 15 cases glaucoma was pseuodoexfoliative. In eyes with narrow angle laser iridotomy was done as first treatment and only then – SLT procedure. In the present study, SLT treatment was performed over 180° with the Tango 532 laser (Ellex, Australia) The energy used in the study was in the range 0.9–1. 3 mJ


Hypotensive effect was reached in 40 eyes. The intraocular pressure reduction 1 week after SLT was 10 mmHg. Intraocular pressure in one month after laser treatment was 16.2 +3.5 mm Hg. In 3 months – 17.5+4.2mm Hg. One case of postoperative hypertension was marked in the patient with pseuodoexfoliative glaucoma


SLT is effective and save laser operation in patients with open and narrow angle glaucoma FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
