Diagnosing and managing glaucoma today requires both accuracy and efficiency. Indications of progression before the damage becomes permanent improves outcomes. Improved patient compliance assists the physician in attaining a good prognosis for his patient. Modern electrophysiology (or, practical objective function testing) can advance a doctor's diagnostic capabilities and improve the management of glaucoma at an earlier stage. SLT with its inherent benefits and repeatability has been moved to the forefront lowering IOP – the hallmark of glaucoma management. The use of both electrophysiology and SLT together helps improve outcomes, increases compliance, reduce costs to the patient and to healthcare as well.
