We analyzed the efficacy, safety and speed reduction of IOP which cannot be corrected by other methods by a single threshold (MTCCLCC) procedure in patients with different forms of glaucoma. After one session of MTCCDLC IOP decreased on average by 11.39 mmHg.
The relative decrease in IOP was 33.0% for the group of patients with POAG group and 27.6% for neovascular glaucoma. The overall success rate for all patients was 52%. The achieved efficacy and the absence of serious complications indicate that threshold MTCCLCC can be widely used in clinical practice as a means of treatment for a quick reduction in IOP.
