Paper Abstract

Clinical effects of iridectomy performed by the use of laser Yag Nd+3-Q-switch on 38 patients treated for intra-ocular pressure increase were analyzed. In 32 cases primary glaucoma was diagnosed. In 11 cases secondary glaucoma was caused by pupil blocking. Pressure normalization was obtained in 27 cases (71%). In the remaining 11 patients pressure decreasing was acquired but at the same time administration of antiglaucoma medicines was indispensable. Time of observation took from 4 weeks to 3 years.
