Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a treatment for glaucoma, in which a laser is used to help drain the eye and relieve pressure. Studies into the procedure show a 78% success rate, and we’re proud to be one of the first hospital groups in the UK to offer this procedure.
SLT is used to combat open-angle glaucoma in its early stages and can be repeated if necessary, depending on the patient’s individual response to treatment.
To assess if your eye health needs are suitable for Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, you will have an in-depth consultation with one of our ophthalmic surgeons. The general requirements are as follows:
- You must have early stage, open-angle glaucoma
- Drugs, medications and non-surgical treatment are not alleviating your symptoms
- You are of general good health
Even if you believe you qualify for SLT based on the requirements above, Optegra treats each case based on your individual circumstances. All potential patients must have an in-depth consultation with one of our leading ophthalmic surgeons who recommend the best treatment options for you.
