Glaucoma Surgery


Glaucoma is a group of diseases that can damage the optic nerve and cause loss of peripheral vision and lead to blindness. Glaucoma is usually, but not always, associated with high eye pressure.

Symptoms of Glaucoma

Many people are unaware they have glaucoma, which is why it is so important to have regular eye exams to identify such eye problems because once vision is lost, it cannot be restored. Symptoms can include:

  • Cloudy vision
  • Halo vision
  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Light sensitivity
  • Tearing
  • Decreased vision


Glaucoma Treatment

Treatment of glaucoma focuses on lowering eye pressure. Glaucoma treatments can preserve remaining vision, but they cannot restore vision already lost. When treated early, the vision loss can be slowed or stopped. Treatment options for glaucoma include:

  • Glaucoma medications
  • Glaucoma laser surgery
  • Incisional microsurgery

As with all surgeries, there are potential, yet rare, risks of traditional glaucoma surgery, such as:

  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Pain or discomfort
  • Vision loss
