Glaucoma patients resistant to conventional medical and surgical therapy have been treated with a variety of cyclodestructive procedures. In recent years, this approach has included the neodymium: YAG (Nd:YAG) laser, which has been used for transscleral cyclophotocoagulation. Fankhauser and coworkers noted that it is difficult to predict the degree of ciliary process destruction after Nd:YAG laser treatment and also expressed concern about possible damage to adjacent ocular tissues. Herein we report the histopathologic findings after Nd:YAG transscleral cyclophotocoagulation in one case.
