I just had SLT again. 7 years ago, I had it and nothing changed. This time, I have been asked to use Ketorolac drops 4 times a day for a week. I never did this the first time and have been told that this is supposed to enhance the results. Has anyone had this and noticed a difference? Thanks,

I think it is used only to reduce the inflammation in your eyes after the SLT. Ketorolac is an NSAID related to Tylenol or paracetamol. Unfortunately it is preserved with BAK, which is not good for the trabecular mesh.

If i were to choose, I would ask the doctor to use the similar anti-inflammatory NSAID Voltaren Diclofenac .1% ophthalmic drops in single dose vials instead. It comes without preservatives.
