Abstract

Purpose: The authors explore an alternative method of performing laser peripheral iridectomy (LPI) in patients with pigment dispersion syndrome and pigmentary glaucoma (PDS/PG) who are high myopes and therefore at increased risk of developing retinal detachment. Methods: Four myopic patients with PDS/PG had LPI performed in one eye. A transilluminator was held up to the opposite eye to provide pupillary constrictionvia the consensual light reflex. No miotics were used. Results: All LPIs were easily performed without complications. Conclusion: The authors present an alternative method to the standard use of pilocarpine for LPI theoretically to decrease further the incidence of retinal detachment in populations predisposed to it.
