Traditional Glaucoma Surgery

Traditional glaucoma surgery is performed in an operating room and you’re surgically trying to create a bypass route for fluid range in the eye to reduce intraocular pressure. Patients with glaucoma have a faulty drain, so we have to bypass it.

When you’re creating out a bypass for the drain in the operating room, obviously that’s going to have some risks involved and so we typically reserve that type of surgery for patients who have failed more conservative measures, or have more advanced disease. So we’ve reserved these procedures for patients who have failed more conservative treatment or have more advanced disease in which these increased risks were justified in saving their vision.
