Glaucoma Surgery

GLAUCOMA SURGERY

By Michael R. Oswald, M.D., Glaucoma Specialist

 

In cases in which the eye pressure remains too high despite drops or laser treatment, there are other surgical options which are available. These are procedures which also help improve fluid drainage from the eye but require an operating room setting to be performed. Trabeculectomy is a surgical procedure in which a new drainage pathway is created for intraocular fluid to leave the eye. This opening is created in the sclera or white of the eye and is usually very effective at lowering the eye pressure. This procedure is performed in the operating room but as an outpatient. Risks associated with this procedure can include infection, too much of a decrease in eye pressure (hypotony) or inadequate lowering of pressure.
