Have open angle glaucoma in early stage. Eye drop reduced pressure to 16. Is it better to use slt as a 2nd line defense rather than 1st?

In brief: Either way

Drops or slt can be first line. Slt can wear off.

In brief: SLT

Some doctors use slt as a first treatment.
Slt is a good option i instead of adding a drop . Sometimes after slt a second drop still needs to be added.
