Aim: To check the short-term tonometric results of SLT in the treatment of primary glaucoma at the open angle and in charge of ocular hypertonias in Togolese people. Methods: A retrospective study was carried out in an ophthalmology center. The first 130 eyes of 72 patients benefited from the SLT laser procedure. The tonometric controls work object focus on follow-up at 1, 3, and 6 months post laser treatment. Results: 130 eyes of 72 patients were collected. The average age of the patients was 49.74 years (± 17.45) and the ages vary between 10 and 85 years. The average IOP of the laser before the laser (J0) was (24.99 ± 8.41) mm Hg. The mean IOP at the post-laser control at 1 month was (18.79 ± 3.73) mm Hg. The average IOP for the post-laser control at 3 months was (18.44 ± 3.81) mm Hg. The mean IOP at the post-laser control at 6 months was (18.13 ± 3.63) mm Hg. The percentage reduction in intraocular pressure compared to IOP was pretreated from 20.2% to 1 month; 22.1% at 3 months; and 23.3% at 6 months. In 1 month, 49.2% of the eyes we treated showed a reduction in IOP of less than 20% compared to IOP pretreatment. After 3 months and 6 months, it was 55.4% higher. Also, 52.3% have a PIO reduction percentage which is greater than or equal to 20% compared to pre-treatment IOP. Discussion: Selective laser trabeculoplasty, most especially, is interesting in ocular hypertonies. Treatment of over 180 ° allows one patient out of two to have a pressure reduction that is greater than or equal to 20%. Conclusion: The SLT presents a significant advantage for our glaucomatous patients.
