A 58-year-old female asked:

After slt laser treatment for glaucoma can you still wear contact lenses?

Ophthalmology 25 years experience
Yes: Slt helps create a better outflow system inside the eye which helps decrease eye pressure. Contact lenses can be worn after as long as your eyemd knows (since a short course of steroid is given for the usual short term inflammation that can occur after slt).
Dr. William Goldstein

Yes: The laser for glaucoma does not affect the surface of the eye, where contact lenses are placed.
