Dr. Gossage shares his experiences using MicroPulse laser therapy to treat retinal and glaucoma disorders.
This article compares argon laser trabeculoplasty (ALT), selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), and MicroPulse™ laser trabeculoplasty (MLT).
“I'm comfortable offering MicroPulse laser trabeculoplasty (MLT) to glaucoma patients as a first-line option because of its potential to reduce intraocular pressure without causing tissue damage. Compared to other lasers used for the treatment of glaucoma, the IQ 532 with the MicroPulse module offers greater versatility because it can also be used for a range of other conditions including diabetic macular edema, proliferative diabetic retinopathy, and retinal tears.”
