Is Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) Really Worth It?
February 24, 2009
I was approached about buying an SLT machine, but I think it’s a poor idea. SLT is not cheap, and my Argon is paid for already. They say it’s more repeatable, but I have heard others who say that clinically, you get little bang from a second procedure.
For a thorough if somewhat dated analysis of SLT, here’s a link to an article on SLT from the 2004 issue of Ophthalmology Management. If there are any more recent articles, please share them via the Comments to this post.
I’m curious what others have to say about their present experience with SLT .
