Experiences with laser trabeculopuncture

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


    54 eyes with glaucoma simplex and 21 eyes with secondary chronic glaucoma were treated once by laser trabeculopuncture and followed up for at least 1 year. The results in the first group were encouraging, in the second group disappointing. L.T.P. appears to be a technique with which, in the majority of cases of glaucoma simplex, a sustained moderate decrease in pressure can be obtained.
