Filter19 Procedures ( View All )

Glaucoma is damage to the optic nerve caused by internal eye pressure, typically the result of built-up eye fluid, that can lead to total blindness.

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

Ab-interno canaloplasty (ABiC), a minimally invasive procedure, improves the flow of eye fluid by enlarging the drainage canal using a microcatheter.

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

During cataract surgery, an iStent can be inserted into the trabecular meshwork of the eye for patients with glaucoma to relieve intraocular pressure.

SLT

Recovery Time
1 - 7 days

Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) relieves intraocular pressure for glaucoma patients when less aggressive treatments do not produce results.

The Ahmed tube shunt, a surgical implant device, allows easier drainage of excess eye fluid to lower eye pressure and slow damage to the optic nerve.
