Treatment of a cyclodialysis cleft with argon laser photocoagulation in a patient with a shallow anterior chamber

Am J Ophthalmol. 1985 Jan 15;99(1):5-7. doi: 10.1016/s0002-9394(14)75857-x.


A 27-year-old man developed a traumatic cyclodialysis cleft with resulting hypotony. He had a flat peripheral anterior chamber, but the chamber was successfully deepened with the help of a Zeiss four-mirror goniolens, and the cyclodialysis cleft treated with argon laser photocoagulation.
