Paper Abstract

Q-switched neodymium-YAG laser iridectomy was performed in sixty eyes with pupillary-block angle closure glaucoma. Single pulse energy levels were more than 6mJ and multi-pulses were more than 4OmJ. The power settings consisted of a burst of 3 pulses (average). The curative successful rate by one to three times was I 00%. The authors advocated that iridectorny site was at middle-peripheral iris, energy level needed more high and lasing session was fewer. The cases have been made follow-up from three months to two years and were showed that the average ocular pressure was decreased l.llKpa (8.35rnmHg) and the vision of 56.7% eyes had obvious improvement, the others had no change. The curative effect was remarkable and no serious complications. KEY WORD: Nd: YAG Laser iridectomy
