Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) is one of the many treatment options for lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with glaucoma. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of SLT.Data were collected from medical records of 289 patients who underwent SLT treatment (180° of trabecular meshwork) during 2014 and 2015 at the Department of Ophthalmology, Sahlgrenska University Hospital, Mölndal, Sweden. Baseline characteristics and information from a follow-up within 100 days were also recorded. The study analysed different subtypes of glaucoma with regard to SLT, with a particular focus on exfoliative glaucoma, a common subtype in Sweden. Successful treatment was defined as an IOP lowering effect of >20% with no further changes in treatment. The impact of surgeon's experience on treatment outcome was also analysed.Both patients with exfoliative glaucoma and those with primary open-angle glaucoma showed a reduction in mean IOP; no significant difference was found between these two subtypes before treatment or at the first follow-up. The success rate at follow-up (within 100 days) was 52%. There was a significant difference in outcome between surgeons with different levels of experience, but this difference could likely be explained by differences in treatment strategies and total energy used.For many patients with glaucoma, SLT was an effective treatment option for lowering IOP. It was also effective for several glaucoma subtypes. However, not all patients had a significant reduction in IOP after treatment with SLT, and some may require additional treatment.
