Abstract

We used endoscopic laser photocoagulation to treat neovascular glaucoma in eight eyes of seven patients. New vessels of the iris and anterior chamber disappeared or stabilized after photocoagulation in seven eyes (88%), while the vision improved in four eyes (50%). The endoscopy was excellent for observing the peripheral retina and ciliary process tissue. We found the endoscopic laser was suitable for wider photocoagulation of ischemic retina against media opacity.
