Laser Eye Surgery

Laser Eye Surgery Overview

At Hattiesburg Clinic, we perform an assortment of laser eye procedures, including focal and pan-retinal photocoagulation (PRP), selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), YAG peripheral iridotomy and YAG posterior capsulotomy. These procedures can be used to treat conditions resulting from glaucoma and cataracts.

Many laser procedures are minimally invasive and are performed in an outpatient setting.

Pan-Retinal Photocoagulation (PRP)

Pan-retinal photocoagulation, or PRP, is a type of laser treatment for the eye. This procedure is used to treat patients who have developed abnormal blood vessels at the back of the eye in the retina or within the drainage system of the eye.

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT)

Selective laser trabeculoplasty, or SLT, is a form of laser surgery used to treat glaucoma by lowering intraocular pressure in the eye. This procedure is commonly done if eye drop medications do not lower the eye pressure enough or cause significant side effects.

YAG Peripheral Iridotomy

YAG peripheral iridotomy is a form of laser surgery used to preserve the remaining eyesight of a patient by creating a hole in the outer edge of the iris. This increases drainage from the angle (the area between the iris and the cornea) and reduces eye pressure.

YAG Posterior Capsulotomy

The YAG posterior capsulotomy is a form of laser surgery used to treat scar tissue formed behind a lens implant. This is sometimes required months or years after the initial cataract surgery because your vision has once again become cloudy.
