Some of the treatments used to treat glaucoma include:
Eyedrops: Some eyedrops improve the drainage of the eye while others prevent the eye from producing excessive fluid.
Laser trabeculoplasty: a laser surgery that reconstructs the eye drain.
Laser iridotomy: a laser surgery customized for people with angle-closure glaucoma.
Glaucoma surgery: surgery to increase drainage in the eye.
Oftentimes treatment with eyedrops is used as a first defense, and then we can reassess whether another treatment is necessary if the eyedrops do not work. Our ophthalmologists are part of the advancing field of modern glaucoma treatment, and they can find a customized treatment option with the goal of halting your vision loss.
