Glaucoma is the name given to a group of eye conditions resulting in loss of vision due to damage to the nerve at the back of the eye (the optic nerve).

There are a number of surgical options for the treatment of glaucoma and the recommended treatment will depend on the type and severity of the glaucoma and your doctor. The below procedures for Glaucoma are performed at ParkView Day Surgery.

Laser Therapy – Cyclodiode

Cyclodiode is a laser procedure used in the treatment of glaucoma and which works to decrease the amount of fluid produced by the eye and requires a short acting local anaesthetic block.

Surgical Therapy – Minimally Invasive Glaucoma Surgery

Minimally invasive glaucoma surgery or MIGS includes a number of procedures where stents are inserted at the time of cataract surgery, to address both cataract and glaucoma. It takes an additional 10 minutes on top of a standard cataract procedure, and there is no increased risk of complications. This procedure is usually performed with local anaesthetic and sedation. Visual recovery is very quick, with improvement in vision in the first 24-72 hours.

Surgical Therapy – Minimally Invasive Bleb Surgery

A small implant, called a Preserflo Device, is inserted into the eye to allow fluid to drain from the eye and reduce intra ocular pressure. The procedure can be performed under local anaesthetic and with sedation.

Surgical Therapy – Trabeculectomy

This is a traditional Glaucoma procedure, where an incision is made in the white of the eye (sclera) to create a trap door, forming a new drainage pathway for fluid to exit the eye. The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and is performed under local anaesthetic with sedation.
