Trabeculoplasty

What is trabeculoplasty?

Trabeculoplasty consists of a surgical procedure performed with an argon laser. This laser is applied to various points of the trabecular meshwork to increase the outflow of aqueous humor into the anterior chamber and decrease intraocular pressure.

In which cases is it done?

Trabeculoplasty is performed in patients with open-angle glaucoma. It is performed when medical treatment is not useful to reduce the pressure, or when the patient cannot be intervened with other surgery. However, it is sometimes the initial treatment for some cases of glaucoma.

Previous exams

A complete ophthalmological examination must be performed, including a gonioscopy to measure the angle and determine if it is open or closed.
