Study: Laser as good as the drops against glaucoma
"Study: Laser as good as the drops against glaucoma,"

"the Laser treatment works as well as eyedrops for the initial treatment of ögonsjukdomen glaucoma (glaucoma), shows a british study."

"the Researchers believe that their findings suggest that the cheaper lasermetoden becomes standard practice, and they get echoed by Boel Bengtsson, phd, associate professor in experimental ophthalmology at Lund university."

" I think that the study is well to recall that the laser works as well as drops, in each case over a three year period. Laser has been used in several years, and also as initial treatment, " she says to Dagens Medicin."

"At the glaucoma increases pressure inside the eye and the treatment is to lower the pressure to reduce the risk of blindness. The most common is that the patient uses eye drops on a daily basis."

"The study enrolled 718 patients at six hospitals in the Uk. After three years, scientists noted that there was no significant difference between those who received the eye drops and those treated with laser, in addition to eleven of those who received the eye drops needed surgery while no one in the lasergruppen needed surgery. The effect of the laser, however, was not persistent at all. 26 percent didn't even have to take eye drops any time."

"the Study is published in the journal The Lancet."
