Laser for Narrow/Closed Angle Glaucoma

Laser Peripheral Iridectomy is the treatment of choice for individuals at risk for, or in an attack of acute angle closure glaucoma.

Acute angle Closure Glaucoma is a sudden painful attack that usually involves the following symptoms:  Headache, Nausea, Vomiting, Blurry Vision and a Red Painful Eye.

Acute angle closure Glaucoma can lead to PERMENENT BLINDNESS within 24 hours.

The treatment for acute angle closure glaucoma is a Laser Peripheral Iridectomy (LPI).  An LPI uses focused light energy to create a hole in the iris (the color part of your eye).  In most cases, this will stop the attack of acute glaucoma.

If you have an eye that is high risk for acute angle closure glaucoma you may choose to have the laser LPI done preventively, before you have the attack of Glaucoma.  People who are farsighted and also people of Asian and Eskimos decent are at higher risk for acute glaucoma.

An LPI laser takes only few minutes to perform but you will be at the hospital or surgical center for about 1-2 hours.  You may feel a mild discomfort during treatment and your vision will be blurry for a day or so after treatment.  Dr. Alessio will see you in the office within one week following the procedure.

An LPI is performed only on one eye at a time.  The second eye can usually be done 1-2 weeks after the first eye is done.  All Blood thinners (Aspirin, Plavix, Coumadin, Vitamin E, etc) should be discontinued before this procedure is performed.  This procedure is covered by almost all medical insurance plans.
