    Although often uncomplicated, the current technique for laser suture lysis after filtration surgery requires patient cooperation and appropriate care taken by the surgeon. In cases with suboptimal cooperation, steadying the 50-┬Ám laser aiming beam exactly over a thin 10-0 nylon suture, can be exhausting, difficult for both the patient and the surgeon; it may prove to be ineffective or even precipitate complications. We describe a novel method for laser suture lysis using a multispot laser system, which requires less patient cooperation and surgeon skills and yields excellent results.
