Laser peripheral iridotomy is a treatment for narrow angle glaucoma. The surgeon uses an Nd:YAG laser to create a small hole in the peripheral iris. The hole (iridotomy) creates a “release valve” and creates an alternate channel for fluid to flow through the eye. The iridotomy decreases the risk of having angle closure and vision loss from glaucoma.
