Nowadays glaucoma is one of the leading causes of irreversible blindness worldwide. The main goal in preservation of vision in glaucoma patients is reducing intraocular pressure (IOP), which is considered the main controlled risk factor for progression of glaucomatous optic neuropathy. The article discusses the effectiveness and safety of various transscleral laser technologies in the treatment of glaucoma. Modern transscleral laser technologies that affect the uveoscleral drainage and scleral hydro-permeability are less traumatic and more gentle making them promising in the treatment of patients with early stages of glaucoma, and not only in terminal glaucoma with pain syndrome resistant to conventional treatment ("last resort surgery").
