The Actual Treatment
Glaucoma laser treatment is performed as an outpatient procedure and takes around 15-20 minutes. Anaesthetic drops will be instilled in your eye before the laser, a special contact lens placed on your eye and you will might only feel slight prickles during the procedure. You should not experience any discomfort and you can resume normal activities the following day.
As with most glaucoma procedures, the effect can wear off after a few years, but SLT can be repeated if necessary.
