Glaucoma surgery information and locations

A glaucoma surgery seeks to reduce the increased pressure inside the eye. Surgeons employ many different techniques depending on the patient. This procedure can be a same day procedure.
Depending on the area where the pressure originates, surgeons choose which procedure to employ. In all procedures, the doctor places numbing drops on the patient’s eye, along with a sedative.
•Trabeculectomy: This is the most common procedure. The surgeon makes a small cut on the white of the eyes to drain excess fluid.
•Argon laser trabeculoplasty (ALT): A laser treats half of the clog at a time, so it drains gradually
•Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT): A low-level laser is targeted only to the parts where the pressure is located.
•Laser peripheral iridotomy (LPI): This is used if glaucoma originates between the iris and cornea.
