    Benefits stem from ability to reduce IOP, use as diagnostic aid, synergy with MIGS

     

    Final thoughts

    SLT, with its ability to reduce IOP in glaucoma patients, its usefulness as a potential diagnostic aid, and its synergy with MIGS is a valuable and underutilized tool in the surgeon’s vast arsenal.
