What is Glaucoma?

If drops are ineffective, further treatments by laser or surgery will be considered by your specialist to effectively lower your eye pressure.

Laser trabeculoplasty treatment consists of targeting the area of the eye that drains out the fluid to more effectively lower the eye pressure. Several treatment sessions are often required. Surgical treatment involves creating a more effective fluid outlet surgically to ensure adequate pressure control. In extreme cases, drainage valves can be inserted into the eye although this is rare. In the vast majority of cases, eye drops will give effective pressure control.
