Abstract:
      AIM: To compare the efficacy of selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) in replacing medical therapy in pseudophakic and phakic eyes.

    METHODS: Subgroup of a prospective randomized clinical trial including patients with primary open angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension controlled with medication. Of 38 pseudophakic eyes were matched with 38 phakic eyes. SLT was offered as a way to decrease medication while maintaining the same low eye pressure. SLT was performed over 360°, at 3ns, spotsize 400 ?m, 100 spots. Data [intraocular pressure (IOP), number of medications needed] were measured at 1h, 1wk, 1, 3, 6 and 12mo. An independent-samples t-test was performed to compare baseline characteristics of the phakic and the pseudophakic group and differences in evolution of mean IOP and number of used medications. Chi-squared analysis was performed to investigate proportions of fast, slow and non-responders.

    RESULTS: The mean IOP measurement was 13.00± 2.88 mm Hg in the phakic group (38 eyes) and 13.51±

    CONCLUSION: IOP lowering effect of SLT is comparable between phakic and pseudophakic eyes.
