Laser peripheral iridotomy

Often used in people with narrow-angle glaucoma. Narrow-angle glaucoma occurs when the angle between the iris and the cornea in the eye is too small. This causes the iris to block fluid drainage, which makes the inner eye pressure increase. Laser peripheral Iridotomy makes a small hole in the iris. This will allow fluid to pass from behind your iris to the trabecular meshwork. Then fluid can drain out of your eye and help decrease your eye pressure.
