Retinal photocoagulation is a new technology for treating eye diseases, but with the increase of various patients
using this technology, retinal photocoagulation has found some adverse reactions in some people. These adverse
reactions have gradually caused people’s attention, but due to the limitations of the examination method, people
cannot observe the response of the iris tissue to retinal photocoagulation in detail. The appearance of ultrasound
bio-microscopy (UBM) makes this research possible. In this paper, a combination of multiple research methods
such as questionnaire survey and literature analysis method were used to examine 23 patients with retinal
photocoagulation using UBM and found that 88.5% of the affected eyes developed transient ciliary on the 3rd
day with choroidal detachment, only 17.4% of the affected eyes with narrowed anterior chamber angle and mild
shallow anterior chamber became lighter, while the intraocular pressure did not increase significantly. The
research in this paper will provide a certain reference value for the adverse reactions of anterior segment
changes after retinal photocoagulation.
