Abstract

When all medical and surgical measures have failed to lower intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with severe and uncontrolled glaucoma, ophthalmologists must turn to cyclodestructive procedures to decrease aqueous production. Several months ago, the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) came through with an approval for a new technology in cyclophotocoagulation therapy. The IRIS Medical G-Probe™ used in conjunction with a semiconductor diode laser may be the superior alternative to previously available cyclodestructive techniques for which ophthalmologists have been searching.
