• Laser Eye surgery
Laser eye surgery has gained tremendous popularity as a treatment method for many eye problems including restoration of 20/20 vision and treatment of glaucoma because it’s painless, less intrusive and fast. There are two main types of laser surgery to treat glaucoma namely Trabeculoplasty and Iridotomy. Trabeculoplasty is done on patients with open-angle glaucoma, and a surgeon uses a laser to correct the drainage angle to make it work better.
Iridotomy, on the other hand, is done on patients with angle-closure glaucoma, and a surgeon uses a laser to create a tiny hole or opening on the Iris to help fluid flow well to the drainage angle.
