Abstract

BACKGROUND: To report for the first time acute transient corneal endothelial changes following selective laser trabeculoplasty. DESIGN: Observational case series at a tertiary referral ophthalmological centre in the United Kingdom (Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge) PARTICIPANTS: Ten consecutive routinely treated patients. METHODS: Baseline measurements of corneal specular microscopy, endothelial cell counts and in vivo confocal microscopy were performed prior to routine selective laser trabeculoplasty treatment. Repeat measurements were made approximately 1 h later and at a 6-week follow up. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Endothelial in vitro laser confocal microscopy, specular microscopic endothel..
