Subliminal Diode Treatment of the Ciliary Bodies by Transscleral Cyclophotocoagulation with a 31.3% Duty Cycle in the Treatment of Refractory Glaucoma: Safety and Efficacy

Micropulse Transscleral diode laser cyclophotocoagulation (MP-TSCPC) is an established method of treatment for refractory glaucoma. This study evaluates the efficacy in terms of reduction in intraocular pressure and/or treatment amount, and safety and side effects of the ciliary bodies using a subthreshold laser with a duty cycle of 31.3% with Supra 810 nm Subliminal Quantel Medical, at one year in patients with refractory glaucoma.
