Abstract

The clinical role of laser trabeculoplasty remains a controversial topic with many different opinions. In the following three viewpoints the authors have taken contrasting positions on whether argon laser trabeculoplasty remains the "gold standard" or has been supplanted by selective laser trabeculoplasty. Questions are raised regarding the position of laser trabeculoplasty within the stepping of the treatment paradigm for open-angle glaucoma. The appropriate use of laser trabeculoplasty at different stages of disease severity is analyzed. A broader perspective with new insights on laser trabeculoplasty from these articles will hopefully lead to a better understanding of its clinical role in practice.
