Argon laser iridoplasty in the treatment of plateau-like iris configuration as result of numerous ciliary body cysts.
PURPOSE: To report the use of argon laser peripheral iridoplasty in the treatment of plateau-like iris configuration as a result of iris and ciliary body cysts. DESIGN: Case report. METHODS: A 43-year-old male with plateau iris syndrome was demonstrated by high frequency ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM), to have numerous iris and ciliary body cysts. Bilateral argon laser peripheral iridoplasty was performed. RESULTS: Argon laser iridoplasty opened the drainage angle in both eyes. CONCLUSION: Argon laser iridoplasty is an effective and safe treatment for plateau iris syndrome and may also prove valuable in the treatment of plateau-like iris configuration resulting from iridociliary cysts.
