I was diagnosed with glaucoma a week ago. I have started using drops, but been asked to consider SLT before my next appointment on 13th November.
I am aware that SLT can have risks, such as pressure building up which can’t be lowered, necessitating surgery, vision changes and even loss of sight.
And I am wondering, even if the risk of loss of sight is very small, is any risk worth taking when it comes to eyesight?
In order to make a decision, I feel I need more information, such as how often do these risks occur?
Can anyone help?
