LPI in temporal iris yields less linear dysphotopsia than in superior iris

Laser peripheral iridotomy performed in the temporal iris resulted in less linear dysphotopsia than in the superior iris, according to a study. The prospective, randomized clinical trial included 338 eyes of 169 patients with primary angle-closure glaucoma or suspected primary-angle closure glaucoma who underwent laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI) temporally in one eye and superiorly in the fellow eye. Investigators evaluated the occurrence on new-onset linear dysphotopsia.
