Paper Abstract

The object of the present study is to estimate the impact of transscleral laser cyclocoagulation as a treatment for patients with non-compensated glaucoma and low visual functions. The effectiveness of the given treatment is estimated by the use of multiple statistical methods, including correlation, multiple regression and discriminant analysis. The results meaningfully confirm the effectiveness of laser surgery in non-compensated open-angle (stage III) glaucoma treatment, whilst the developed mathematical model of correlation between intra-eye liquid production and key operation parameters can be successfully used to control the process of liquid production.
