Private eye surgery: selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) to lower intraocular pressure in glaucoma (both eyes)

Private eye surgery: selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) to lower intraocular pressure in glaucoma (both eyes)

Minimal waiting times and high-quality care at your fingertips with care at Midland Eye Clinic

SLT is a procedure used to reduce pressure in the eye (intraocular pressure). If you have healthy eyes, the fluid in your eye (aqueous humour) flows through your pupil into the front of your eye. It then drains away through drainage channels inside the eye. These channels are situated where the cornea (clear front layer of the eye) and the iris (coloured part of the eye) meet. In some eyes, these drainage channels do not work properly so your eye pressure increases.

This increase in pressure may injure your optic nerve and impair your vision. This is called glaucoma. In a trabeculoplasty procedure, a laser beam is applied to the drainage channels, which helps to unclog them. This means the fluid in your eye flows through the channels better, reducing the pressure in your eye. Aqueous humour is a completely different fluid to your tears, which will not be affected by this laser treatment. SLT is successful in about three out of four (75%) patients. If the treatment is successful, you may be able to reduce the number of eye drops you currently use to manage your glaucoma. This is not a permanent treatment, and may need to be repeated in the future to control your eye pressure adequately.
