A retrospective study was performed to evaluate the long-term efficacy of argon laser trabeculoplasty in 131 patients (148 eyes) with primary open-angle or pseudoexfoliative glaucoma. Success was defined as an intraocular pressure of 22 mm Hg or less, no further glaucoma surgery, and use of comparable or lower-dose topical antiglaucoma treatment. Efficacy of laser trabeculoplasty decreased with time (follow-up, 6 to 120 months). Good results persisted for about 2.5 years in 50% of cases.
