Treatment for Glaucoma is important because left untreated, glaucoma can cause permanent damage to the optic nerve, resulting in gradual vision loss and ultimately, blindness. Vision loss from glaucoma is permanent but can usually be prevented with early detection and treatment. Glaucoma is a degenerative disease initiated by an elevated intraocular pressure (IOP).
Glaucoma management is usually a lifelong process that requires frequent monitoring and can be treated with topical medication. Regular doctor visits are the only way to determine whether a patient’s glaucoma is under control.
Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, or SLT, is an innovative and highly effective glaucoma treatment. SLT is a Glaucoma Laser Surgery that does not rely on medicines; instead, it employs a laser to stimulate the body’s healing response system, reducing pressure in the eye.

For patients who are not candidates for SLT treatment for Glaucoma, they may be candidates for a surgical Trabeculotomy.
