英文摘要: Abstract(#br) Background(#br)Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) is widely used for the treatment of glaucoma. The main target tissue of this treatment modality is trabecular meshwork. We aimed to detect the SLT-induced changes in the thickness of ciliary body (CBT) and iris (IT), quantitatively.(#br) Methods(#br)Thirty-one patients treated by SLT were examined by ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM) at different locations of ciliary body and iris at four quadrants, before and after (3rd, 7th, and 30th days) SLT. The IT was measured at various locations; 500 μm anterior to the scleral spur (IT1), 2 mm from the iris root (IT2) and near the pupillary edge where the iris thickness was maximum (IT3) at four quadrants. The CBT at positions 1 and 2 mm posterior to...
