Iridotomy involves focussed use of Laser on the iris of the eye for patients suffering from glaucoma. Laser iridotomy is used to prevent subacute closed-angle glaucoma and acute closed angle glaucoma. Iridotomy can be done as an outpatient procedure. First the eye is numbed and a small opening is made on the iris so as to reduce the pressure building within the eyeball. The patient wont go through any pain but some localized heat or pinching sensation. Complications that can arise with iridotomy are bleeding in the iris, blurred vision for a brief period and in rare cases loss of vision.Tags: #Iridotomy
