What is Glaucoma Surgery

What is Glaucoma Surgery

Glaucoma Surgery is a type of eye surgery designed to reduce eye pressure and help prevent damage to the optic nerve caused by glaucoma.It is typically performed on patients with glaucoma, a condition in which the pressure inside the eye is elevated, putting the optic nerve at risk of damage and vision loss.

The surgery is used to create a new pathway for the fluid in the eye to drain, reducing the pressure inside the eye.It is usually performed under a local or general anesthetic, and the procedure typically lasts between 1-2 hours.

During the procedure, the ophthalmologist may use lasers, tiny incisions, or a combination of both to create an artificial drainage channel.After the surgery, the eye pressure should be monitored in order to ensure it is at a safe level and that the patient is not experiencing any complications.

The success rate of glaucoma surgery is generally very high and most patients are able to maintain normal vision after the procedure.

Is there any option other than Glaucoma Surgery

  1. Medication: there are a variety of medications that can help treat glaucoma, including beta blockers, prostaglandin analogs, alpha-agonists, and carbonic anhydrase inhibitors.
  2. Laser therapy: this type of therapy uses a laser to reduce the amount of fluid produced in the eye, which helps reduce eye pressure.
  3. Trabeculoplasty: this involves using a laser to improve the flow of fluid out of the eye, which helps reduce eye pressure.
  4. Eye drops: this is a non-invasive option that can help reduce eye pressure.
  5. Micropulse laser therapy: this approach uses a low-level laser to reduce eye pressure and can help slow the progression of glaucoma.

Absolutely love how understanding Dr. Kumud Raut is. The only place where I have not been told about only the process of getting a surgery, but rather they insist on educating about how the eye functions and the importance of having a healthy eye before any surgery.
