    SLT without gonioscopy lens successful

    Orlando—Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) without the use of a gonioscopy lens was performed successfully and still decreased IOP over 6 months, said Michael Belkin, MD.

    Dr. Belkin, of the Goldschleger Eye Research Institute, Tel-Aviv University, Tel-Hashomer, Israel, highlighted his results during a session on glaucoma surgery, wound healing, and lasers at the 2014 meeting of the Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology.

    In his study, a control group of 16 patients had conventional SLT with 100 laser spots through a gonioscope for 360° directly on the trabecular meshwork. A trial group had irridation performed by the same laser and with the same irridation parameters but without the gonioscope. All surgeries were performed by the same surgeon, Dr. Belkin said.
