The difference is that unlike most of you, I try to get all of my OHT patients SLT.
That way I can watch with a bit more comfort. BTW...there are studies that state that Hysteresis demonstrates who will best benefit from drops...or SLT..can't remember and I'm not that good at quickly finding those suckers...but I remember seeing one recently.
And in another ten years maybe..everyone will realize the benefit of SLT for compliance..
And just maybe you'll say..
Damn, that Panzer guy was doing that ten years plus ago..
Thanks for all the great input and guidance.
So to review the STD/Fast/Faster protocol:
Do you baseline your suspects with SITA Std? then at some point do you transition to "Fast"
Thank you again.
The HFA-3 is set up with 24-2 SITA Fast as the default and that is what we use for baseline and all follow-ups.
Remember, both SITA Std and SITA Fast give up a little in precision to gain a lot in patient reliability, without significantly affecting our ability to detect progression of glaucoma.
