Glaucoma can only be treated not cured

There are a number of different ways that Glaucoma can be treated 

How is glaucoma treated?

You might simply have

medicated eye drops to use every day.

or

  laser treatment, (with or without the uses of medicated eye drops), to open the trabecular meshwork and reduce the IOP by speeding up fluid drainage.

or

if you require cataract surgery,then iStents will be implanted at the same time to reduce pressure.

if the pressure can not be controlled the the final option of a trabeculectomy will be discussed.

Each glaucoma case is different and Dr Wilson will discuss treatment options with you so you understand why one or another would be best for you and the required course of treatment will commence
