Micropulse Transscleral Cyctophotocoagulation Laser Procedure at CFAEC
This laser procedure offers a highly effective and safe treatment for patients with glaucoma who need lower eye pressure and have not responded to or are not good candidates for topical eye drops or selective laser trabeculoplasty. It works by providing short bursts of laser energy to the ciliary body (the structure inside the eye that produces aqueous fluid and is in part responsible for elevated eye pressure). Inflammation occurs with this process and most patients are prescribed topical anti-inflammatory drops afterwards to allow for proper healing. Most patients experience an improvement in eye pressure immediately after the procedure, and the laser can be repeated if adequate eye pressure is not achieved after the first treatment.
