Sun, Jan 6 4:26pm · YAG Laser Iridotomy Complications in Eye Conditions

I agree with you! I’m 34 and I’m worried that a laser is going to impact my vision for the rest of my life. I’ve been reading so many forums online (like this one) that say that people are having huge visual issues due to the placement of the hole. Why aren’t more drs looking at this? It’s terrifying.

Thank you! I am. I went for my normal annual exam on Dec 14th and saw a glaucoma specialist on Jan 2. He was so quick and just casually was like “yeah so we’ll schedule you for surgery.” I understand that they know what they’re looking at, but I’m thinking that they’re just so quick to say you need surgery. I’m not sure.

@jigglejaws94 – I was recently diagnosed with narrow angles without glaucoma or any pressure issues. Your posts have been so helpful in determining the placement of the iridotomy holes. I am absolutely terrified of this procedure (more so impacting my vision, which is fine, than the procedure itself.) I’m thinking of going for a second opinion as well, before deciding on anything. I have done a lot of research in the last few days and I’m still scared.

Hi! I was wondering if you went ahead with the iridotomy? I’m also in the same boat and have been doing my research.

Hi! I was also recently diagnosed with narrow angles without glaucoma and an iridotomy is strongly suggested. I’m terrified and doing as much research as possible. Have you gone for a second opinion? Thanks for your help!
