    In a large cohort of eyes undergoing selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT), Kuley et al. sought to determine predictors of SLT success in lowering intraocular pressure (IOP) in patients with glaucoma. They found that greater pre-SLT IOP and angle pigment correlated positively with SLT success. Patient age, total SLT power, severity of glaucoma, and prior treatments were not associated with SLT success or failure.
