Abstract
 
Purpose:
 

To study long term intraocular pressure (IOP) reduction after2nd and 3rd repeat selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT).

 
Methods:
 

Single site retrospective electronic medical records reviewof patients with open angle glaucoma undergoing 2nd and 3rdrepeat SLT for IOP reduction between 5/2003 & 5/2010. Eyeswith prior argon laser trabeculoplasty, or glaucoma incisionalsurgery were excluded. Demographics, laser parameters, numberof glaucoma medications and IOP at baseline, 1, 4, 8, 12, 18,24 m post operation (p/o) were collected. Percent of eyes withIOP reduction ≥20% from baseline was determined. Means, standarddeviation, one way ANOVA followed by Tukey's test were usedfor analysis.

 
Results:
 

A total of 45 eyes with 2nd SLT (25 subjects, mean age 73 y)were included. 2nd SLT was performed a mean of 28.3 ±12.7 m after the 1st. 3rd SLT (20 eyes, 11 subjects, mean age76 y) was performed 30.6 ± 13.6 m after 2nd SLT. IOPreductions were significant with1st, 2nd and 3rd SLT comparedto baseline (Table1). Mean numbers of glaucoma medications for2nd and 3rd SLT at baseline and up to 24 m were not significantlydifferent. Percent eyes achieving an IOP reduction ≥ 20% for1st SLT, 2nd and 3rd repeat SLT are included in Table 2.

 
Conclusions:
 

We found 2nd and 3rd repeat SLT reduced IOP. Long term IOP reductionwas achieved with 2nd and 3rd repeat SLT in this cohort of patients.
