Vos yeux sont remplis d'un liquide fabriqué par le corps ciliaire. Ce liquide s'écoule à travers la pupille, devant le cristallin, puis sort par un drain appelé trabéculum. Le glaucome est une maladie dans laquelle une pression accrue dans l'œil endommage le nerf optique. Il survient généralement lorsque le trabéculum (drain) ne fonctionne pas et que le liquide ne peut pas s'écouler de l'œil. L'accumulation de liquide dans la partie avant de l'œil augmente la pression dans l'œil, ce qui endommage le nerf optique. Ce dommage peut d'abord entraîner une perte de la vision latérale (sur les côtés). Si elle n'est pas traitée, elle peut entraîner une perte de la vision centrale. Le présent dépliant définit le glaucome aigu et le glaucome chronique et décrit les différents examens effectués pour diagnostiquer le glaucome. Les médicaments, le laser et la chirurgie sont des traitements possibles. Des instructions sont aussi fournies pour l’utilisation des gouttes ophtalmiques.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Glaucoma Management" pamphlet 0140. Your eyes are filled with a fluid made by the ciliary body. This fluid flows through the pupil, in front of the lens, and then out through a drain called the trabecular meshwork. Glaucoma is a disease where increased pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve. It usually happens when the trabecular meshwork (drain) does not work and fluid cannot drain from the eye. Fluid buildup in the front part of the eye increases pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve. This damage may at first cause loss of side vision. If left untreated, it may cause loss of central vision. Acute and chronic glaucoma are defined. The various tests used to diagnose glaucoma are described. Treatment can be medication, laser, or surgery. We have also provided instructions on how to use eye drops.

Abstract
Vos yeux sont remplis d'un liquide fabriqué par le corps ciliaire. Ce liquide s'écoule à travers la pupille, devant le cristallin, puis sort par un drain appelé trabéculum. Le glaucome est une maladie dans laquelle une pression accrue dans l'œil endommage le nerf optique. Il survient généralement lorsque le trabéculum (drain) ne fonctionne pas et que le liquide ne peut pas s'écouler de l'œil. L'accumulation de liquide dans la partie avant de l'œil augmente la pression dans l'œil, ce qui endommage le nerf optique. Ce dommage peut d'abord entraîner une perte de la vision latérale (sur les côtés). Si elle n'est pas traitée, elle peut entraîner une perte de la vision centrale. La trabéculoplastie sélective au laser (TSL) est utilisée pour traiter le glaucome chronique à angle ouvert en aidant à contrôler la pression à l'intérieur de votre œil. Un laser (faisceau lumineux très concentré) est dirigé sur les drains pour aider le liquide à circuler plus librement. Dans le présent dépliant, nous vous expliquons comment vous préparer au traitement, comment est effectué le traitement, les soins qui suivent le traitement au laser et les risques possibles.
This pamphlet is a French translation of "Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) for Glaucoma" pamphlet 0333. Your eyes are filled with a fluid made by the ciliary body. This fluid flows through the pupil, in front of the lens, and then out through a drain called the trabecular meshwork. Glaucoma is a disease where increased pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve. It usually happens when the trabecular meshwork (drain) does not work and fluid cannot drain from the eye. Fluid buildup in the front part of the eye increases pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve. This damage may at first cause loss of side vision. If left untreated, it may cause loss of central vision. SLT is used to treat chronic open angle glaucoma by helping to control the pressure inside your eye. A laser (highly focused beam of light) is focused on the drains to help the fluid move more freely. The pamphlet describes getting ready for treatment, how the treatment is done, care after laser treatment, and possible risks.
