  • Question about Glaucoma

    Hello all,
    My Glaucoma diagnosis is new and I am currently instilling drops.
    I am aware that Laser is now a recognised form of treatment options.
    At what point in the disease and its treatment process does laser commonly become indicated?

    Laser treatment for glaucoma is called Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty or SLT for short.
    It can be used as an INITIAL treatment instead of drops or it can be used as part of a drop minimisation strategy. Thus if drops are failing to control the problem, laser can be introduced to avoid going onto more drops.
    There are currently trials underway looking to see if is better as an initial treatment.

    As I rule I generally try laser first and then add in drops if it fails or gives an inadequate pressure fall

  • Is it ok to 'do nothing' if I have retinal vein occlusion - just diagnosed this week, age 67 years, female
    I cannot afford the Lucentis Intravitreal injections suggested.

    Vein occlusions are of several varieties. The ischaemic type tends to profoundly affect vision and can even lead to vision loss. Part of this is due to sub retinal fluid accumulation. This fluid is due to leaking vessels and can be very sensitive to both Lucentis and Eylea which can dramatically improve vision. Both can be obtained on compassionate grounds if your ophthalmologist applies for it
