Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a laser procedure used to lower intraocular pressure in patients with open angle glaucoma. Laser energy is applied to the trabecular meshwork (a specialized section of the draining system of the eye) to stimulate better flow through the eye’s drains.  SLT is preformed in an office-setting, requires very little pre-and post-procedural preparation, is painless, and effective in most patients.
