Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI)

Laser Peripheral Iridotomy (LPI) is type of laser procedure used in closed-angle glaucoma.  It is used to equalize the pressure between the front and back chambers of the eye.  This is done by using a laser to create a very small hole(s) in the iris to allow the fluid to drain from the back to the…



SLT Laser

Selective Laser Trabeculoplasty (SLT) is a highly effective laser procedure that reduces the pressure inside the eye.  It uses short pulses of low-energy light to target cells in the drainage system to increase drainage and help lower the eye pressure.  Given the gentle action of SLT, it can be…



Trabeculectomy (Filtering Microsurgery)

Trabeculectomy (Filtering Microsurgery) is usually recommended only if eye drops and laser eye surgery cannot lower the eye pressure to a safe level.  In this procedure, a new drainage canal (filter) is created surgically for the eye.  The excess fluid in the eye is then collected in this filter…



Tube Shunt Surgery

Tube Shunt Surgery is a surgical procedure in which a glaucoma drainage device, or implant, is actually inserted into the eye to bypass the obstructed drainage system of the eye.  It is usually only recommended for very severe cases of glaucoma.
