Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a laser-enabled surgery to treat intraocular pressure caused by open-angle glaucoma. In patients with open-angle glaucoma, the trabecular meshwork (drainage tissue in the eye) does not allow for adequate outflow, causing intraocular pressure (IOP) which needs to be managed with medication or surgical intervention. Unregulated IOP can lead to blindness.
SLT is one of many management options to address IOP in open-angle glaucoma patients.
