Abstract: Argon laser iridoplasty is effective in the treatment of primary acute angle closure glaucoma. Iridoplasty requires less energy than iridotomy, and can be used in cases with a hazy cornea and mid-dilated pupils which do not respond to medical therapy. The authors present a prospective study of iridoplasty in ten cases of primary acute angle closure glaucoma in dark Asian irides. They found that iridoplasty was effective in the treatment of these cases and avoided the need for trabeculectomy. The results of cases treated by this technique were good, with eight cases having visual acuities of 20/50 or better and IOPs of below 20 mm Hg without medication.
