Explaining SLT and the LiGHT Trial
Due to its excellent benefit-to-risk profile, Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty, or SLT, is being offered earlier in the treatment of glaucoma, including as primary therapy. Learn about a recent major study that showed glaucoma patients receiving this simple 5-minute laser procedure did as well or better than those treated with eye drops.

Inder Paul Singh, MD, President of The Eye Centers of Racine & Kenosha, will share his insights about the benefits of SLT for glaucoma, and Gus Gazzard, MD, Director of the Glaucoma Service at Moorfields Eye Hospital, will discuss results from the “Laser in Glaucoma and Ocular Hypertension (LiGHT) Trial,” which aimed to establish whether initial treatment with SLT is superior to initial treatment with topical medication for primary open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension. The webinar will be moderated by Thomas M. Brunner, President and CEO of Glaucoma Research Foundation.

Following the presentations, attendees will have an opportunity to submit questions for Dr. Singh and Dr. Gazzard during the live Q&A session.
