    Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) is an easy laser method that can be conveniently learned by ophthalmologists because of the larger spot size used in the technique. It has been demonstrated that SLT is a novel choice to manage intraocular pressure in eyes with several forms of open-angle...
