  • 10/06/2013 - 09:15 PATTERN LASER 2013, Glaucoma, Oct Pattern laser trabeculoplasty (PLT) using a 577nm laser with computer-guided scanning technology (PASCAL Streamline 577, Topcon Medical Laser Systems) appears to be effective treatment for open- angle glaucoma (OAG) offering potential advantages relative to other laser techniques, reported Japanese researchers at the 2013 annual meeting of the Association for Vision in Research and Ophthalmology.
