Cyclophotocoagulation device can help lower IOP
Though technology (MicroPulse P3 Glaucoma Device, Iridex) allows surgeons to personalize glaucoma therapy and reduce IOP, there are ways to work the laser effectively depending on several patient factors, said Nathan Radcliffe, MD.

The MicroPulse P3 is used in conjunction with the CYCLO G6 Glaucoma Laser System in the office or the operating room. This cyclophotocoagulation device controls thermal elevation by chopping a continuous-wave beam into repetitive microsecond pulses (micropulses), which allow the tissue to cool between pulses, Dr. Radcliffe said.

The treatment is efficient, non-incisional, repeatable, titratable, and can help address common concerns about medication compliance....
