SELECTIVE LASER TRABECULOPLASTY V LATANOPROST IN OPEN ANGLE GLAUCOMA
Argon laser trabeculoplasty is an established form of therapy for open angle glaucoma. Some studies have indicated that it is preferable to medical treatment. Nagar and co-workers performed a prospective randomised clinical trial comparing 90°, 180°, and 360° selective laser trabeculoplasty v latanoprost 0.005% for the control of intraocular pressure in open angle glaucoma. Success rates were higher with latanoprost at night than with 90° or 180° selective laser trabeculoplasty treatments. In general, 90° treatment was ineffective; 360° selective laser trabeculoplasty appears to be an effective treatment although transient anterior uveitis with ocular discomfort may be associated with it.
