Micropulse transscleral cyclophotocoagulation is a promising and relatively new technique that uses repetitive micropulses of diode laser energy, delivered with the Cyclo G6 Glaucoma Laser System (Iridex Corporation), in an off-and-on cyclical manner. This review article provides an update on the latest data available for this technique, including a discussion of the aspects in which there is still limited data, such as the precise mechanism of action, the ideal laser parameters based on total energy levels, as well as an overview of other potentially relevant variables that may be playing an important role in outcomes.
