Glaucoma is the second leading cause of blindness in the world according to World Health Organization data. It is considered a “perfidious vision thief” because it irreparably damages the optic nerve and the retinal nerves layer, which gradually reduces the vision without manifesting symptoms.
Knezović Eye Clinic follows world trends in the treatment of eye diseases and in its assortment proudly presents the latest non-invasive and permanent glaucoma treatment device -OPTO-Yag & SLT laser used in the best European and American eye clinics.
This device is a combination of two different laser systems, Nd-YAG laser and SLT laser, installed in a biomicroscope with a projection lamp and are used for non-invasive treatment of glaucoma and some other eye diseases:
Selective laser trabeculoplasty – The most modern approach to the treatment of open-angle glaucoma
Peripheral laser iridotomy – Treatment of closed-angle glaucoma
YAG laser capsulotomy – Treating the back of the lens caps (secondary cataract) after surgery
Why choose to treat glaucoma with SLT laser?
SLT laser shows the best results in clinical studies in non-invasive treating of open-angle glaucoma (visible with electronic microscope). The laser effect lasts between 1 and 5 years, sometimes longer and can be repeated without any harmful effects on the eye.
Laser treatment of closed angle glaucoma
