    PSLT shows promise in lowering intraocular pressure

    Although similar in efficacy and safety to SLT, PSLT may offer advantages

    The goal in the management of patients with glaucoma is to preserve the visual field and the integrity of the optic nerve by lowering intraocular pressure (IOP). There are different ways to reduce IOP in patients with primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG), including medications, lasers and surgery.

    From the armamentarium of IOP-lowering medications, the prostaglandin analogue is generally accepted as the first-line medical therapy. Augmentation of IOP-lowering therapy is needed when the patient’s IOP is not in an acceptable range and/or there is evidence of disease deterioration.
