Neodymium: YAG laser treatment of iris bombe and pupillary block glaucoma



Neodymium: YAG laser treatment of iris bombe and pupillary block glaucoma



Progress in Veterinary and Comparative Ophthalmology 2(1): 13-19



Iris bombe (IB) and pupillary block glaucoma (PBG) that occur as the result of extensive posterior synechiae are vision-threatening sequelae to chronic or severe uveitis. Because synechia tend to quickly reform following conventional surgical intervention, the prognosis for these conditions has traditionally been poor in small animals.
