Laser Peripheral Iridotomy
Treatment for Angle-Closure Glaucoma
If you have the angle-closure form of glaucoma in Corpus Christi, TX, you may benefit from the YAG Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (PI) treatment. In this form of glaucoma, the shape of the iris may prohibit fluid from escaping the eye.
Using the YAG laser, our doctors can eliminate the blockage of the eye’s drainage system by creating a small opening in the peripheral of the iris to allow fluid to flow from the eye and reduce eye pressure. This is a quick procedure that can be done in the office.
This treatment can also be used to prevent the development of angle-closure glaucoma if it is identified that you have a narrow drainage angle.
