Hi,

What are the indications of narrow angle iridotomy? How to cure side effects (starburst, glare, halos, ghost images)?

Thanks

 

Answer

Thanks for your Question

Laser Iridotomy is indicated in cases with closed or narrow angle glaucoma. Halos and glare can be caused by high intraocular pressure. Hence, you have to be sure that the intraocular pressured is reduced with iridotomy.

Starburst is common side effects after iridotomy and is last for a few days
