What happens during laser iridotomy surgery?


With laser iridotomy, the ophthalmologist
uses a focused beam of light to create a tiny opening about the size of a pinhead
in the iris. This opening allows trapped fluid behind the iris to flow into the
front of the eye usually reducing pressure. A laser iridotomy is an
important way to treat or prevent a sudden rise in eye pressure that can
seriously affect your eyesight.
