Glaucoma Treatment and Surgery Puerto Vallarta
There are several different treatments for glaucoma, including eyedrops, laser treatment and surgery. The best treatment for you will depend on your circumstances.
Treatment can’t reverse any loss of vision that has already occurred, but it can help stop your vision getting any worse.
Your treatment will largely depend on which type of glaucoma you have.
The most common type, primary open angle glaucoma, is usually treated with eyedrops.
Laser treatment or surgery may be offered if drops don’t help.
Glaucoma Surgery removes part of the eye-drainage tubes to allow fluid to drain more easily.
Most people won’t need to take eyedrops any more after trabeculectomy, and you shouldn’t be in a lot of pain after surgery.
