Recently diagnosed with glaucoma. I have tried Lumigan eye drops and zioptan eye drops and can’t tolerate them. Makes my eye extremely dry red and make floaters and flashes. Has anyone had SLT procedure to reduce the IOP in your eyes. If so, how is it? Did it work? Thanks so much for any information!

      Hi! I’ve had many eye issues including high pressures for years. I had the laser treatment done in an emergency and it helped a lot, but did not fix the problem long term. I’ve had a shunt surgically put in and will need another this summer (first one was 10 years ago). It was in my eye with a cataract that was removed as well.
