Forskolin and rutin prevent intraocular pressure spikes after Nd:YAG laser iridotomy
. Panminerva Med.
Six eyes had Fuchs' corneal endothelial dystrophy, nine had iatrogenic bullous keratopathy, six underwent argon laser iridotomy
, and three were subjected to phacoemulsification and IOL implantation.

was performed at the 6-o'clock position using a 25-gauge vitreous cutter to prevent the development of a postoperative pupillary block.
Accommodation and iridotomy
in the pigment dispersion syndrome.
I think your father will have laser iridotomy
to do this.
Peripheral laser iridotomy
was performed to release the pupillary block.
She was discharged home one month after admission and right and left eye laser peripheral iridotomy
was performed 3 weeks after ICU discharge (Figure).
It is associated with proliferative diabetic retinopathy, retinal artery macro aneurysm, trauma,1 age-related maculopathy, hematological disorders such as leukemia and chemotherapy induced pancytopenia, following laser in situ keratomileusis because of rapid release of the microkeratotome vacum pressure or after retinal vascular rupture associated with physical exertion (valsalva retinopathy), Terson's syndrome, Purtscher's syndrome.2 Visual acuity is often profoundly reduced but spontaneous clearance usually occurs within few months.3 Nd: yag laser (neodymium yag laser) is commonly used for a variety of anterior segment procedures particularly iridotomy
and posterior capsulotomy.
To treat it, health care professionals may initially administer medications to reduce eye pressure as fast as possible until a surgery called iridotomy
can be done.
* Peripheral Nd: YAG laser iridotomy
to reestablish the communication between the anterior and posterior chambers of the eye by making an opening in the peripheral iris.
(5) Treatment may include a surgical procedure, such as paracentesis of the eye, peripheral iridotomy
, or iridectomy, and chronic administration of topical medication.
When medical therapy fails in open angle glaucoma, or if medical therapy and laser YAG peripheral iridotomy
fails in patients with angle closure glaucoma, surgery can be attempted.
The technique is now used in ophthalmology to perform capsulotomy, peripheral iridotomy
in glaucoma and to cut vitreous bands.9,10
In cases of pupillary block glaucoma occurring with posterior capsular tear and vitreous loss we performed Nd YAG laser iridotomy
(ies) after first lowering the intra ocular pressure with IV Mannitol and oral acetazolamide.
