Laser Trabeculoplasty

Laser trabeculoplasty uses a very focused beam of light to treat the drainage angle of the eye. This surgery makes it easier for fluid to flow out of the front part of the eye, decreasing pressure in the eye.

 

There are two types of laser trabeculoplasty:

  • Argon laser trabeculoplasty (ALT).

  • Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT).

Punctal Plugs

A punctal plug (tear duct plug) is a small medical device that is inserted into the tear duct (puncta) of an eye to block the duct. This prevents the drainage of liquid from the eye. They are used to treat dry eye. Artificial tears are usually still required after punctal plug insertion.
