This chapter covers the indications, contraindications, techniques, outcomes, and complications of LPI. Its role is well defined in most of the areas, but no conclusion can be drawn at present regarding prophylactic use for glaucoma suspects. More studies are needed to define its safety and efficacy. Overall, LPI is a relatively safe procedure and the majority of complications can be avoided if it is performed properly.
