untreated glaucoma patients
We will evaluate the blood flow before and after Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty in patients with primary open angel glaucoma.
Procedure: Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty
Patient will have selective laser trabeculoplasty as the first treatment for glaucoma. This treatment will be dictated clinically, since we do not assign the interventions.
- blood flow [ Time Frame: before and two-week after SLT ]The Canon Laser Blood Flowmetry will be used to assess the retinal blood flow.
- Intraocuclar pressure [ Time Frame: before and two-week after SLT ]Intraocular pressure (IOP) will be measured by Goldmann applanation tonometry.
