On y trouve des instructions pour se préparer en vue d’une chirurgie oculaire. Sujets abordés : où aller, report de l’opération et préparation la veille de l’opération (ce que vous pouvez manger/boire, les médicaments, si vous êtes diabétique, etc.) et le matin de l’opération (hygiène personnelle, objets de valeur, ce qu’il faut apporter à l’hôpital). On vous dit à quoi vous attendre selon qu’on utilisera une anesthésie locale ou une anesthésie générale. Vous devez avoir un adulte responsable qui pourra s’occuper de vous durant les 24 heures qui suivent l’opération. Votre opération pourrait être annulée si vous n’avez pas quelqu’un qui peut rester avec vous après l’opération. On vous remettra une ordonnance pour des gouttes oculaires. Si vous avez besoin d’aide pour mettre les gouttes dans vos yeux, dites-le à quelqu’un au cabinet du chirurgien avant la date prévue de votre opération.

Abstract
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. The French version of this pamphlet 1912, "Trabéculoplastie sélective au laser (TSL) pour le glaucome", is also available.

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.
