cellular destruction is not the goal, the effect may not be as great as desired. Some people may need to continue to take eye drops for intraocular pressure even after selective laser trabeculoplasty. Most people enjoy a reduction in their eye drop use after the procedure, however.
Approximately 56% of all patients achieve results of 20/20 or better and over 90% achieve 20/40 or better (which is good enough to drive without corrective lenses in most regions).1 Those with moderate to high myopia (greater than 7 diopters) have a lesser chance of achieving that result. As technique and technology improve, the results continue to improve.
