To determine the magnitude of IOP reduction, responserate (RR) and time between multiple SLT treatments in eyes withopen angle glaucoma.
This is a retrospective study of 49 glaucomatous eyes(2 OHT, 2 Pigmentary, 1 PXFG, and 44 POAG) of 39 patients. 5eyes had prior ALT, 8 eyes were pseudophakic, 37 eyes were onand 12 eyes were off glaucoma meds. SLT 1 & 2 treatmentswere 1800 and 180–3600 for SLT 3. A successful responsewas an IOP reduction >3 mmHg from baseline at 6+1 month postSLT. A minimum of 6 month’s f/u up was required for studyinclusion.
Mean f/u up time for all eyes were 23.3+8.6 mos (range:6– 43). Mean baseline IOP (mm Hg) was 22.5+5.2 with amean of 1.3 glaucoma meds before SLT 1. Mean IOP reductionsfrom baseline, and RR at 6 mos after treatment were: SLT 1(n=49):3.3+5, RR 51%, SLT 2(n=45): 4.2+5.7, RR 58%, SLT 3(n=6): 10.6+7.2,RR 100%. Eyes were divided based on initial baseline IOP>21or IOP<21. IOP reduction and RR’s were compared foreach SLT treatment.
