Brief Summary:
To measure the efficacy and safety outcomes of SLT performed by optometrists.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Primary Open-Angle Glaucoma, Unspecified Eye Ocular Hypertension Device: Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty

Detailed Description:
Participants will undergo a pre-procedure examination in order to record baseline findings and to determine if they meet the inclusion criteria in order to undergo the procedure. Participants will undergo the SLT procedure and will be examined at 1 hour, 1 week and 6 weeks. Follow up examinations will evaluate eye pressure reduction and post-procedure complications. The rate complication post-procedure are typically low.

    Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty Laser

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Intraocular Pressure via Goldmann tonometry [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
