SLT (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty) for Glaucoma

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT)

What to expect on procedure day

An hour before the laser procedure drops will be used to make the pupil smaller. Your treatment will be performed in a specially equipped laser room. Just before the procedure numbing drops will be placed into your eye to keep it comfortable.

A special lens is then placed on the eye which will focus the laser beam onto the trabecular meshwork. You will not feel any pain during the procedure. You may see flashes of bright green or red light. The procedure takes 10-20 minutes.

Your eye pressure will be checked shortly after your procedure. You should relax for the rest of the day. Follow up visits are necessary to monitor your eye pressure.

While it may take a few weeks to see the full pressure lowering effect of this procedure, during which time you may have to continue taking your medication. Many patients are eventually able to discontinue some of their medications.

According to a recent multicentre randomised controlled trial, Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty should be offered as a first-line treatment for open angle glaucoma and ocular hypertension.

VIEW ALLWhat Our Patients Say

A year ago, Mr. Golchin treated me for the removal of cataracts. It was a complete success and I am very very pleased with the results. I am very grateful to him for his expertise and professionalism. He inspired trust and confidence. I was treated with kindness and respect in a calm, relaxed atmosphere. I was allowed to engage with the process to the extent that I need to, yet was never overwhelmed by too many technical details or jargon. It was indeed, a very positive experience.
