Glaucoma Treatment Options
Different treatment options may be considered depending on the type of glaucoma. Topical eye medications (eye drops) or oral medications (pills) can be very effective at controlling intraocular pressure to prevent eye damage for many patients. However, some patients may require surgery to reduce their intraocular pressure to a safe level by improving the outflow or drainage of fluids. After surgery, a patient’s dependency on expensive eye drops to control glaucoma is either reduced significantly or even eliminated. Others may need to continue using eye drops post glaucoma surgery.

The selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) procedure increases outflow of internal eye fluid. The laser, performed by an ophthalmologist, is used to create tiny holes in the filtration angle of the eye, where the cornea and iris meet. The SLT creates minimal heat damage to adjacent tissue, which generally means the procedure can be repeated safely. Recent studies indicate and Dr. Shofner agrees that this laser procedure may be equally as effective as glaucoma eye
