Abstract
The task of the laser methods of glaucoma treatment used up to the present day is to reduce the intraocular pressure. They are the modification of the surgical procedures. The radiation of the laser is the tool that enables us to perform the procedure in a more precise and safe manner. Most of the procedures are ambulatory, thus, making the expenses for the treatment lower. The results of the treatment are satisfactory, and in many cases, enable the patient to avoid surgical procedures. In practice, for the anti-glaucoma procedures the argon laser, YAG Nd+3, of free generation, and Q-switch, Holm laser, are being used. The perspectives to use other lasers also exist.
