Abstract Details


To evaluate the efficacy of repeat 360-degree selective laser trabeculoplsty (SLT)in Glaucoma patients with prior successful 360-degree SLT.


Magarbi Eye and Ear hospital Jeddah,Saudi Arabia


Forty eyes of 20 patients more than 24 years of age, with open angle glaucoma (primary open-angle, pseudoexfoliation, pigmentery.or pseudophakic glaucoma), uncontrolled on antiglaucoma therapy or poor compliance with drops, underwent an initial 360-degree SLT (SLT1),which was successful in IOP control for 6 month ,but efficacy decreased with time. These patients followed by a repeat 360-degree SLT (SLT2). Intraocular pressures (IOP) were recorded before each procedure and 1 week, 1 month, 3 month and 6 month post laser treatment


IOP was significantly less in both SLT 1 and SLT 2 with more than 20 % IOP reduction .No significant difference in IOP reduction between SLT 1 and SLT 2 .The IOP reduction was more significant 1 month after laser session. Mild anterior uveitis was documented in 10% of cases.


360 degree SLT is safe and effective procedure in Glaucoma patient after initial successful 360 degree SLT has failed. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
