Eye conditions with vascular diseases, diabetes, membranes, retinal breaks, and macular degenerations are all treated by Argon Laser Trabeculoplasty (ALT). The ALT helps prevent the eye surgeon from the leakage of fluid from the blood vessels of the retina and to stop the development of abnormal blood vessels in the patient’s eye.
It’s a non-invasive procedure where glaucoma patients can get treated, as glaucoma damages the nerves that carry visual messages to the brain known as the optic nerve. Glaucoma is an eye disease caused by the high pressure inside the patient’s eye. These problems are related to diabetes or other conditions affecting the blood vessels on the retina.
