The different surgeries and how they work:
Microtrabeculectomies. We insert microscopic-sized tubes into the eye to drain fluid.
Trabecular surgery. Through a special contact lens on the eye, we insert a tiny device via a small incision into the part of the eye responsible for draining the fluid from the eye
Suprachoroidal shunts. We insert small tubes to connect the front of the eye to the pathway that runs towards the back of the eye to aid the draining of fluid.
Milder versions of laser photocoagulation. Recent advances in the laser treatment of glaucoma include endocyclophotocoagulation and micropulse cyclophotocoagulation. These procedures help to reduce the eye’s ability to produce fluid and can assist with advanced stages of glaucoma.
