Dr Weingarten performs laser surgery for glaucoma treatment. He uses the Lumenis SLT in his Rochester office. SLT (Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty) has been shown to deliver powerful intraocular pressure reduction without causing any thermal damage. It can be used as primary therapy or as adjunctive to medical treatment. The majority of glaucoma patients have been shown to be noncompliant with taking their glaucoma prescriptions. SLT has been shown to reduce patient dependence on topical medications and save them money. If you live in the Detroit Metropolitan area (Rochester, Auburn Hills, Lake Orion, Troy, Bloomfield Hills, Utica, Sterling Heights) and are interested in finding out if you’re a candidate for SLT treatment, call our office at 248-650-2255 for a glaucoma evaluation.
