Sažetak

The aim of the study was to assess the impact of primary argon laser trabeculoplasty
(ALT) on intraocular pressure (IOP) lowering and quality of life improvement in patients with
pseudoexfoliative glaucoma. Sixty patients with newly diagnosed pseudoexfoliative glaucoma who
underwent primary ALT (group 2) or medication therapy (group 1) were followed-up. The effect of
ALT on IOP reduction, dry eye development and number of antiglaucoma drugs used was examined.
Patients were examined at the beginning of the study and then after 6, 12, and 18 months. A statistically
significant difference between IOP values was observed throughout the 18-month follow-up,
with the highest significance recorded 6 months after ALT (p=0.009). Twelve months after the start
of the study, the TBUT value was 6.0±0.8 s in group 1 and 8.4±0.7 s in group 2. In group 2, the value
of Schirmer test was constantly above 10 millimeters. The number of antiglaucoma medications used
in group 1 was statistically significantly higher as compared to group 2 throughout the 18-month
study period. ALT was found to be better choice for temporary regulation of IOP in patients with
pseudoexfoliative glaucoma.
