In-Office Procedures

At NY Vision Group, we are equipped to perform several in-office procedures. We utilize the latest technologies and are experienced in performing: Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT), Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI), Iridoplasty, and Retinal Laser Treatments. These procedures are primarily used to treat glaucoma (in the case of the SLT and LPI) or retinal disease, such as diabetic retinopathy, in the case of Retinal Laser Treatments.

The SLT is a common treatment for Open-Angle Glaucoma; during this procedure, laser treatment is applied to the trabecular meshwork. For patients with Closed or Narrow-Angle Glaucoma, Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (or LPI) is an option. Occasionally, in patients with glaucoma, the iris approach to the angle causes a blockage. The treatment for this condition requires a laser iridoplasty. In addition, we perform Retinal Laser Treatments for diabetic retinopathy, retinal vein occlusions, retinal tears, and other retinal vascular disorders. All of these treatments are performed in the comfort of our own office. Patients remain awake and comfortable throughout the process, which is typically painless, and can go home immediately following the treatment.
